Icing On My Cake’s confectioner, Taras, draws upon formal European art schooling to instruct others in the delicate decoration of canvases crafted with equal parts flavor and fluff. Specializing in the British and Australian schools of cake decoration, Taras makes a compelling case for knighthood as he deftly guides students in coronating spongy sweets with elegant crowns. During 90-minute courses in cake decoration, ornamental flower construction, or topper design, students acquire skills ranging from basic frosting techniques to crafting corsages and lifelike prom dates entirely from sugar. General decoration classes rely on Taras’s embellishment expertise to cloak cakes in tasteful chemises woven from icing. Courses include all materials, and intimate class sizes ensure detailed instruction for decorators of all ability levels.
