Introducing Lewis the Rabbit – Lewis definitely has a little steampunk styling going on, with a good sprinkling of Alice in Wonderland, but at the end of the day Lewis would tell you he is totally Lewis at heart. To Jacqui Kelly he is a very special little guy, winner of Cake International London 2014 and now you can learn all the skills and techniques to create your own uniquely lovable Lewis.
The photograph shown here is the actual project that you will create in class and as an added bonus he can be created in a choice four different colour palettes to suit the personality of your own creation.
I teach a maximum of 6 students so that I can give them each lots of 1-2-1 time and so that projects are always completed before class ends
