Hong Kong Orchid & Frangipani Class

Hong Kong Orchid

My June 16th class sold out. I’d like to thank all my students-see you soon in Salò.

If you missed the chance to book for the Sunday Class, I’ll be teaching another class on June 15th: Hong Kong Orchid (demoed at the Cake Design Italian Festival) and Frangipani (seen on “Le Torte di Toni – Masterclass”).


Le Torte di Toni – Backstage

Filming of the fourth season of “Le Torte di Toni” just ended.

For the new season, Toni invited a few Italian sugarcrafters to show their craft decorating a cake.

Various episodes will feature all sugarcraft specialties: royal icing, modeling and… sugar floristry!

I found Toni’s invitation flattering, but I was also a bit worried.

My previous experience was limited to this video, which took a whole afternoon to fim.

I got to the filming location one day before the actual filming, and I met the lovely guys from the troupe. They were a bit restless, not because of my arrival, but because it was past dinner time.

During dinner, the team’s cohesion was pretty evident, and everybody did their best to make me feel at home.

The following morning, during make-up, I realised I felt surrounded by friends. Filming was very funny, especially considerino a few “bloopers”.

I’d like to thank Toni, our lovely host, Stefano, the director, Mario, the audio engineer, camera operators Fulvio (macro) and Leo (tele), Sabrina, makeup, Sara and Federico, producers, for making me feel at home.

My heartfelt thanks to Elga from B&B Villa la Bianca.

Be our guest at “Le Torte di Toni” with Italian-style Master Classes!
