The Craft of Cake Painting: Airbrush Artist Lisa Berczel

By Kathryn Gordon—Co-Chair, Center for Advanced Pastry Studies

When it comes to the art of the airbrush, there’s little Lisa Berczel hasn’t tried. From painting cars to cakes and even the human body, Lisa is renowned for her genre-defying airbrush illusions and artwork. This summer, we’re thrilled to host a two-day workshop with Lisa on August 29-30th at our Center for Advanced Pastry Studies. Read on to learn more about Lisa’s diverse industry experience.


What techniques will be covered in the CAPS class?
The class is a comprehensive two-day boot camp. The first day will focus on understanding the airbrush, knowing which airbrush is the best fit for our needs and proper workplace setup. Students will learn and practice all the basic strokes, cleaning procedures and how to troubleshoot common issues. The second day we’ll introduce more advanced techniques, such as stenciling and painting on decorative items such as edible printer sheets, wafer paper, molded fondant and more.
