Do I need to have fondant modeling experience?

Not really, it's not necessary. This course is suitable for all levels, since the basics of flower modeling are explained from scratch, and by following the explanations step by step you will get to perfect your creations. This way you will be able to carry out modeling with a great level of detail even if you have never practiced this discipline. You will see that it is easier than it seems!

Do I need special tools to do it?

You will only need to have fondant and modeling paste, coloring, and some basic tools that you surely already have at home: stakes, scissors, a scalpel or sharp knife, brushes, edible glue, and a roller. You hardly need anything else!

Are the patterned flowers edible?

Yes, the flowers are made in sugar paste, so they are edible. However, you must be careful with the wires that are used to maintain the structure, you must remove them if you want to consume the figures. Although in reality your flowers will be so beautiful, you will surely be sad to eat them.

Can I make any design once the course is done?

Of course, it all depends on your imagination! Susanna will teach you the basics of modeling and you can then apply her techniques to any design you want, you don't have to make the same flowers that have been made in this course.
