"The buttercream flower workshop was perfect! Lara and Alain are both such amazing hosts and kind people. It was wonderful to get to be welcomed into their home and be able to build upon some experience I have had with buttercream flowers. Lara is a great teacher and they are both more than happy to answer and and all questions!" 

The buttercream flower workshop was perfect!

JULIANA | @SINFULSWEETSCAKERY

"Taking LILA’s workshop was such an amazing experience. Not only did I walked out of there with added knowledge in regards to piping buttercream flowers but I actually ended up getting input on how to run my business, suppliers, how she does everything else from cake boards to boxes, transportation, piping tip storage ideas… I mean, it was worth every penny and then some more!" 

Taking LILA's workshop was such an amazing experience.

ELIZABETH | @CITYGALBAKES

"As a total newbie to buttercream florals of any kind finding herself in a room with real pros, I walked in terrified in the morning and left in the afternoon totally shocked at what I was able to create. Lara and Alain were the most gracious hosts. Lara was the most welcoming, calm and patient instructor, and I was very impressed by her ability to work with everyone in the room, from total pros to beginners! She answered every single question and provided real insight into how to run a cake business, right down to what podcasts she listens to ;). Thank you, Lara!

I feel very privileged to have had the opportunity to learn from the talented cake/buttercream flower artist Lara. The workshop was very detailed and well organized. Lara explained and demonstrated everything in such detail that as a beginner, I felt very comfortable piping my first buttercream flowers. Even after the workshop, she is available and willing to answer any questions that may arise. If you are looking to invest in yourself, this workshop is the place to be! Worth every penny and the distance that you may travel! Highly recommended!

“I loved meeting Lara and Alain! Lara is a true artist and wonderful teacher! Her buttercream flower class can be taken by beginners as well as advanced cake artists. She walks you step by step through the whole process, while having fun along the way! Highly recommend taking any of Lara’s classes!”

Highly recommend taking any of Lara's classes!

TAYLOR | @caRVEDCOLOR

"I decided to sign up for this class even though I am not a cake or pastry designer, and I am so glad I did! Lara makes everything fun and easy to understand even if this is your first time or 100th time decorating cakes. Aside from Lara's expert instruction... the space, set up and general attention to detail is above and beyond. But what would you expect, I mean look at her cakes!"

Lara makes everything fun and easy to understand.

ABBY | @ABBYSTOLFO

"This workshop is one of the best investments you can make in your cake decorating development. Not only did I come away with a gorgeous cake and techniques that I’ve since been able to recreate, I also left with a wealth of information on a wide range of best practices for running a cake business that has saved me months of learning by trial and error. Lara is beyond generous with her knowledge and her instruction is patient and clear. Thank you, Lara and Alain for your warm, welcoming hospitality and a truly cake-changing experience."

One of the best investments you can make in your cake decorating development.
