Attended the Unicorn Korean Buttercream Floral Crown Cake Workshop with Siew Lee the other day, courtesy of Butter Studio.
The workshop was a one day course, taught by Master Trainer Lucia, who came all the way from Korea!
This pretty lady is only a year older than me, but well-equipped with years of experience in cake decorating, and is one of the most impressive pastry chefs I've met in real life!
I felt so honoured to have been able to attend her class!! ^~^
Master Trainer Lucia's Instagram:
First, she taught us some tips and tricks on how to frost the crumb-coated red velvet cake (provided by Butter Studio) as perfectly as possible.
I was struggling at this, but thankfully I had Siew Lee with me haha!
Siew Lee is the CDP at Boufe Boutique Cafe and she's a lot more zai than I am, so she contributed a lot to our cake xD
Before Lucia taught us how to pipe the buttercream flowers, Siew Lee and I went over to take a closer look at her Unicorn Cake first!
I really can't believe these aren't real flowers omg.
I've seen fondant flowers and buttercream flowers on cupcakes before, but nothing comes close to this standard!! :O
They really look super soft and realistic, I'd never imagined they could be piped with buttercream!
Super thrilled to be able to impart some of Lucia's amazing skills through this workshop! ^~^
Lucia's so steady and confident, there were no hesitations in her moves.
She looks cool even when she's mixing the colouring into the buttercream!
We were taught colour studies, which colours to mix to achieve the perfect tones, recommended colours for different flowers etc.
In our one-day workshop, lunch was also included and provided by Butter Studio!
I had their Godfather Burger, an awe-inspiring name for a burger, and Siew Lee ordered the Mexican Wrestler.
I thought the Mexican Wrestler was really yummy cause of the refreshing Mexican spices they used!
The servings were really generous, and I also enjoyed my lunch with their Hot Nutella drink :P
Butter Studio also sells an assortment of cupcakes & whole cakes.
Among which, this Lychee Rose cake caught our eye!
The dainty rose buds added a beautiful touch to this light, fragrant cake that filled our mouths with the aroma of rose with each bite!
After lunch and it was back to piping!!! Let's go!
I wish I could just stay at pipe for three whole days so I can improve more hahah!
The ambiance of the place was fantastic and extremely conducive, I'd definitely want to be back at Butter Studio for more workshops, especially if it's taught by Lucia! :)
Lucia taught us 6 different flowers in total, and patiently held our hands to pipe some of them!!
She's extremely sweet and patient with all of us, and I'm so thankful to Lucia that I could even pipe some decent flowers with zero experience prior :D
We looked around at the other students' flowers and some of theirs were so uniformed in size and soooo pretty we were like "omg do we suck or what?" :X
And then I went over to one of the ladies and asked if it was her first time, and was honestly quite relieved to learn from her that she's been to Lucia's workshop in SG a year ago, and now she's back to learn more!
Hopefully Siew Lee and I can become really good at this after more practice too! :)
After we were done with piping as many beautiful flowers as we can, it was time to adorn our cakes with them!
Lucia demonstrated recommended placements of different flowers for the optimal look, the technique of transferring the flowers onto the cake, and tricks to keep them stable and not fall off!
And then it was hands-on time for us! ^~^
Added the final touches of gold to the eyes of the Unicorn Cake!
Couldn't stop taking pictures of all our beautiful Floral Crown Unicorn Cake creations as they lined up neatly on the table! :D
Once again, thank you soooo much Master Trainer Lucia & Butter Studio for organizing this!
I had a ton of fun & it was an extremely fruitful day of learning for all of us.
I'd definitely look forward to joining more workshops in future because there's simply so much more for me to learn! :D
And YAY because we got to bring our cakes back to eat. It was delicious, and even the buttercream tasted good! :P
For those who are keen, you can find more information or sign up for workshops at Butter Studio's Facebook or IG page, and hopefully we can be in the same classes some time too! :)
Please enjoy the pictures! ^~^
