The much sought after and highly acclaimed Sachiko Windbiel from mimicafe has come to the PBSS studio to teach us a few of our phenomenal techniques!

In this tutorial, Sachiko will teach us how to make a Statue of Liberty inspired design. Sachiko's modelling work is instantly recognisable as she creates the most delicate and inviting faces and does it all using sugarpaste!
This is an ideal tutorial for lovers of anything American! However, the techniques learned here can be used for a number of ideas for cake toppers. This cake could suit all occasions and with the skills learned you would be able to turn this into a wedding cake topper, a birthday cake topper or even a stand alone cake. There are endless possibilities.
In this tutorial, you'll learn how to:
  • Create a structured model
  • Advanced modelling
  • Create beautiful faces
  • Realistic eyes
  • Miniature clothing and much much more!

We'd love to see your take on Miss Liberty - so make sure you share your photos with us on our Facebook page.
