The world of cake design is challenging and competitive. 


Unless you acquire the creative skills to standout in your market, it can be a struggle to charge enough to sustain a profitable business. 


You might also find yourself stuck:

- Repeating the same Pinterest designs. 

- Losing your passion and creative spark. 

- Questioning the future of your business. 


Whether you work with fondant or buttercream, gum paste or wafer paper, you can elevate your cake designs by mastering color theory and flowers. 


It’s worked for me and over 3000 of my students. 


It can work for you, too.

Founder & Cake Designer

Winifred Kristé

Hi I’m Winifred, and I teach passionate cake artists how to excel in design through the use of exquisite color palettes and life-like florals.

When I started my cake design business 11+ years ago, I learnt everything the hard and costly way—through trial and error. I clearly remember the frustration of trying to figure out what tools to use, which mediums to work with, how to be more creative, why my colors looked like everyone else’s, and wondering who I could trust for advice.

Having witnessed my years of experimentation, fellow vendors and industry friends began asking for my advice. It was such a joy to be able to support them and witness the ripple effect of my education.

This was the beginning of my passion for teaching. I’ve since taught in-person classes in Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia, USA and UK, and helped almost 3000 students through my online classes and courses.

It’s my mission to empower cake artists, hobbyists and small business owners with the right tools, skills and mindset to flourish in doing what they love.

I hope to be able to support and welcome you into our learning community, too!

This course is a worthwhile investment for anyone looking to expand their sugar flower skill set! I had never worked with wafer paper prior to taking the course. Experimenting with a new medium has been great for my creative process and I can’t wait to see how this new knowledge impacts my cake design! The production quality of the course makes it not just educational but enjoyable to watch.

I love the course so much and can't wait to make more!! It took me a long time to make (the ranunculus) but I'm going to keep practicing to get better. I just can't stop looking at it because I think it's so pretty and I'm so proud. I've never worked with wafer paper before, only gum paste, so this was fun! You are a great teacher.

I bought your colour theory class- it was on the pricier side but I still learned a lot. I teach too and have actually looked at the colour wheels before for my own classes but I've never seen it like how you shared before. It's very interesting and I definitely did learn a few new things. Thank you!

"This course has been the best investment to my creative business! Winifred is so thorough and explains her technique with so much detail by breaking her methods down into small steps and guiding you through her whole process. I am a very visual learner and her videos are easy to follow and understand. Her cameras are set up in many different angles that give you close up detail on her techniques with the tools being used. And the best part is that you have unlimited access to the courses and can go back to replay any part of the video that you needed a refresher on.

Before taking this class I had never worked with wafer paper. But with Winifred’s thorough instructions I was able to produce results beyond my expectations. Winifred is very methodical in her instructions and takes you step by step through out this entire course."

COLOR THEORY

Learning how to create beautiful and sophisticated color combinations will give depth and a more natural look to your flowers. Achieving this starts with understanding color theory, color harmonies, and color palette mixing.

WAFER PAPER FLOWERS

Expanding your techniques and range of flowers and foliages will enable you to create designs that stand out from the competition. Ranunculus, peonies, sweetpea and hydrangea are just some of the varieties you’ll learn to make.

"The Wafer Paper Masterclass broadened my horizons."

"It’s with unique perspectives in terms of color, shape, movement, etc. “ color theory” is one of the most helpful online courses that I have taken. A bit change in color leads to an obvious difference in the final pieces. Even though the course only has a few demos of flowers, the techniques mentioned can be flexibly used. I like the course having many closeups. The flower petal templates make it easier to be consistent in size at the beginning of making sugar flowers. I would go back to the video whenever I need new inspirations in the future."

"Having the course available to me was almost like having the homework done for me."

I was amazed by how easy it was to follow along with the WKC online course as I had my first experience creating florals with wafer paper. The notes were succinct and provided valuable details to take note which helped me gain an understanding of the flower I was making.

Having the course available to me was almost like having the homework done for me to easily execute the flower I was making (with limited processing of trial and error).

Loved the little tips on colour theory as I was making my flower - really helped me naturally transition the beautiful stages of colours in a ranunculus.

"Winifred teaches with clear directions."

I took Winifred’s online ranunculus wafer paper class and I absolutely LOVED it! Winifred teaches with clear direction and in a such a way that makes it easy to understand the process. I had never worked with wafer paper before and was so proud and happy with the results! I love the flowers I was able create!! it’s helpful to be able to pause the class and go back and watch it again and again if needed. I would highly recommend investing in this amazing class!! I so look forward to adding what I have learned to my cake designs!

- Pamela (@pamelajheckman)

"I highly recommend the course."

I highly recommend the course. A lot of useful information, you can really make beautiful flowers and you will understand the techniques and secrets. Winifred, I am really grateful for your knowledge that you share with us. I admire your work and am very happy to have the opportunity to study your techniques. This is the best course! I can't guess how many years it would have taken for the same result without this course. Many many years, I think. The part about Colour Theory is unique knowledge. I felt like an artist and enjoyed it. I am inspired by your knowledge and hard work. Many thanks for this course 🙏

Frequently Asked Questions

  • What medium do you work with and teach in your online classes?

    I make my flowers with both wafer paper and gum paste, depending on the look I want to achieve. All of my online classes are currently taught using wafer paper, which is made up of a combination of potato starch, water, and vegetable oil. Most wafer papers are flavorless or have a neutral taste which is an advantage as it doesn’t affect the taste of a cake when the flowers are applied.

  • Why do you use wafer paper instead of gum paste?

    I love both mediums for different reasons. One big reason why I use wafer paper instead of gumpaste is because of how light weight it is. When adding a lot of flowers to a cake design, this is important. Other benefits of wafer paper include taking only minutes to dry, which means faster assembly and no waiting overnight before dusting. Flowers made from wafer paper can also last forever, so you won’t have to worry about flowers withering again.

  • I’ve only ever worked with gum paste. Are the techniques similar for both of these mediums?

    Wafer paper is not hard to learn. You can give it a try for yourself with my FREE Cosmos workshop, and read the testimonials from students who have produced stunning results working with wafer paper for the first time. Many techniques for gumpaste and wafer paper are interchangeable.

  • Do wafer paper flowers work well with buttercream cakes, or only on fondant?

    Wafer paper can work on buttercream cakes, too. Just remember to add in a layer of melted cocoa butter between the wafer paper flowers and the buttercream so the condensation from the buttercream will not soften or affect the wafer paper. (Wafer paper is sensitive to moisture.)

  • Do you teach cake design, or only wafer paper flowers?

    I teach both wafer paper flowers and cake design—specifically how to plan & conceptualize a design and how to decorate flowers on cakes—in my Wafer Paper Masterclass: Spring in Full Bloom.

  • It’s very humid where I live. Will wafer paper still work for my designs?

    WKC is based in Singapore where the humidity level is around 70-80% on average, so yes! Both wafer paper and gum paste flowers can be made in humid climates. Helpful tools include a dehumidifier to reduce the humidity level to about 60-65%, and the use of vodka to condition wafer paper. You can learn more about working with wafer paper on my blog.
