What is the difference between the Full Masterclass & the Individual Classes?
The Full Masterclass: Art of Wafer Paper Flowers & Cake Design (Spring in Full Bloom) allows you to take advantage of all the individual classes at a bundled price with additional exclusive curriculum like conceptualising of cake design (& more). You will also learn how to design the cake design shown. If one is not ready for a Full Masterclass, they can start with smaller individual classes, which are made up of different individual chapters that are part of the Full Course.
I am a complete beginner, will this course be suitable for me?
A 100% YES! Winifred learns most of her skills from ground up, the Masterclass course and every curriculum is designed with the thought of making sure all the fundamentals are covered in detail step-by-step processes, before we move on to something more intense. So you're in safe hands to kick start your wafer paper and cake decorating journey here. All we ask for, is a heart open to learning.
I already know how to create flowers with gumpaste/ wafer paper. Will I learn anything new from this course?
Winifred Kristé Cake's Sugar Flower creations are renowned for the unique colour choices and cohesive cake design. If you’re looking to elevate your designs and expand your own repertoire of skills to take your portfolio to the next level, you’ll love the level of detail in this course. Beyond the basics, you will also learn about conceptualising a cake design, bringing your inspiration to life and other important techniques on creating textures on your cake to pull everything together.
Will I be able to get a refund if I find out that this course is not suitable for me?

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.)
