Sugar Baroque Style Picture Frame Tutorial

Intermediate

Learn how to make a Baroque style picture frame with Pastillage!

In this tutorial Chef Yener is making another picture frame, only this time it’s decorated with hand made Baroque style ornaments. It is made the same way that real commercial picture frames are, with four sides cut at 45 degree angles and joined. Practical methods and simple acts throughout the process make the frame look more sophisticated than it is.
