A Flowery Weekend with Nicholas Lodge

The day finally arrived!  I have been waiting impatiently for this day to come... A two FULL days of sugar flower making with the one of the best in the industry, NICHOLAS LODGE!  Nicholas Lodge is one of the most respectable, brilliant, and amazing sugar artists in the world.  It's very hard to differentiate between his sugar flower works and the real flowers.
I took his sugar flower classes on Craftsy and immediately I said to myself, I MUST learn from him in person.  He is very methodical and precise.  From just the two wonderful Craftsy classes, I have learnt A LOT!

He offered two wonderful classes for his trip to Vancouver this time.  The fall basket and the Exotic Sugar Orchids.  I chose the latter though I'd love to take both classes due to the practicality of the latter class to be applied to wedding cakes and such.

The Master Sugar Flower at work... showing his magic

Chef Lodge's class is fun, fast-paced, and very informative.  He showed us a lot of neat tips and tricks along the way.  He is very precise in his method, and I believed that later I should be able to replicate at home.  On one note though, this class probably more catered to those with some previous sugar flower work.  I am still a novice at this sugar flower making, and I have to pace myself to work a little faster to go along with the class.  Regardless, in the wet and rainy Vancouver days, we managed to learn to make 6 types of Exotic and Tropical Orchids.

Thank you to Nanette of Devine Deals in New Westminster, BC who hosted Chef Lodge for this wonderful class!  Until next time!
