With a specialty in hand-molded botanical flowers made from gumpaste, Vilna’s breathtaking motifs have found their way on decorated cakes all over the world. For 32 years, Vilna worked as Sylvia Weinstock’s lead flower maker, and ultimately grew to lead her bakery’s floral department, traveling the world to hand-deliver and assemble some of Sylvia’s top clients’ cakes on site. Vilna has taught hands-on classes in the United States and Japan, and her passion is giving back to her community by mentoring young adults and children in the art of cake decorating. In this class, Vilna will teach you her technique for making orchids, peonies, and a variety of small buds and leaves to complete a gorgeous gumpaste flower spray.
