Back to Class with Ron Ben-Israel

In early March this year, I will have the wonderful opportunity to return to Minette Rushing's Custom Cakes in Savannah, Georgia! I am happily taking two classes with the incredibly talented Ron Ben-Israel! The first class will be a Masters sugarpaste flower class, where we will be studying Southern Flowers, and making camellias, dogwood, jasmine and magnolias. I have made only several of these flowers before, but it was a long time ago, so I am really looking forward to Ron's presentation and the hands-on practice. Second, I will attend a class entitled Bring on the Bling! where we will mix and make custom silicone molds! You know how gorgeous Ron's cakes are...and he uses a lot of custom molds for lace, architectural details and beautiful jewelry pieces. I haven't used a lot of these elements on my cakes before, but I can't wait to try them!

Last year, Ron's class was a lot of fun and a great learning opportunity, I met some wonderful and very talented cake designers and sugar artists, and Minette was the most gracious host ever. In short...it was a really fabulous three days!

I just heard from Minette, and she told me there are several spots left in Ron's Bring on the Bling! class on March 6th, 7th and 8th!! If you are interested, contact Minette right away to get signed up! There are more details about Ron's class, as well as all of the wonderful classes Minette offers, at her Sugar Seminars site.

Wow! So interesting! I wish i could take Ron's classes too! He is very talented! I saw one of his interview or something that showed how he did his own silicon mold to recreate a brooch for the wedding cake. It was soo beautiful! :)

Do blog and let us know how the classes went! ;) Looking forward to reading it and seeing some of your works!
