I am still full of excitement and would love to share my Tiled Fun & Modern Geometric Cake with everyone that I designed two months ago for my new Craftsy class, Cakes In Vivid Color, which JUST launched yesterday!! It was SUCH an exhilarating experience and although I was nervous and unsure of myself the whole time, I learned SO much and had the BEST time!

(YAY!! Here is a $20 OFF link so you can get it for a whopping 50% OFF – www.craftsy.com/ext/VioletLin-Tran_5167_H)

You can learn the techniques used to make this cake which walks you through the split tier paneling technique I often use, how to cleanly tile your cake as well as how to come up with your own patterns. Also included with the class materials is a downloadable step by step tutorial for my signature stylized lotus flower featured on this design. And I just released the extended version of the tutorial in my FB SHOP on my page. Oh and I have a free tutorial for the white anemone flower under Albums on my FB page.

This design was inspired by a pattern I’d seen on a bed spread in a home decor magazine. I chose the grey used here based on current trends in home decor as well. It helps to balance the bright colours and the overall composition of the cake, and gives the cake a modern vibe.

A big huge thanks to all those who have supported me here. I owe this great fortune to friends like you who inspire me and encourage my creativity with your kind uplifting comments!
