Zari Embroidery Demonstration
I am so honored to have been selected to demonstrate at the 2009 ICES convention in St. Charles, Illinois, just outside of Chicago. ICES stands for International Cake Exploration Societé, and the organization has over 3500 members worldwide, including sugar artists, cake designers, and vendors.
My demonstration will teach how to replicate Zari embroidery in cake design. Created in India, Zari is a stunning form of embroidery which uses glittery gold and silver thread combined with fine stitching. Above and below are example of cakes that incorporate this technique. My demo is on Saturday, August 1. For more about the ICES convention click here. Hope to see you there!
