Sidney Galpern Returns to ISAC!


Hold on to your isomalt hats everyone! The ISAC team was excited to host Sidney Galpern for our Grand Holiday Open House this past November, and her two holiday themed classes filled up very very quickly. We decided to heat up our Hotlanta summer even more by inviting Sidney back to teach three incredible isomalt classes: Beer on Ice, The Shoe is on the Other Foot, and Dancing Dolphin.


Before I tell you more about each class, let me share a bit about Sidney: she is a Certified Professional Chocolatier, cake designer, sugar artist, and an ICES Approved Teacher. She graduated with honors from the prestigious Ecole Chocolat School of the Chocolate Arts (the youngest student to ever complete the program!). She has trained with top sugar artists and chefs in New York City, London, Orlando, and West Palm Beach. For the last eight years, Sidney has taught, demonstrated and judged sugar and cake decorating at venues such as Keiser University, The Cake Cruise, ICES Convention and Days of Sharing, The Festival of Chocolate, at cake clubs, restaurants and cake supply stores as well as teaching private classes… She is the owner of Simi Cakes & Confections in Melbourne, Florida. Oh, and she plays the drums. I met Sidney for the first time at our Grand Holiday Open House, and let me tell you. She is just as awesome as she sounds. She is a fantastic instructor and her talent is, quite frankly, indescribable. Since I cannot put into words how talented she is, let’s just talk about the three classes she will be teaching in Studio B!

On Saturday, June 11, Sidney is actually teaching two half-day classes! From 9am- 12pm, students will be able to take Sidney’s Beer on Ice class; and, as the title suggests, students will learn how to make a life-sized, 3D beer bottle and ice cubes! Oh, and every student will get to keep their very own beer bottle mold! Hooray! In the afternoon, from 1pm-5pm, Sidney will be teaching her The Shoe is on the Other Foot class! Students will be learning how to create a stylish 6-inch, free-standing, isomalt high heel shoe! The mold used to create this shoe offers a couple different elements so that you can create a variety of custom designed shoes. Very fancy. Students in this class are also lucky enough to be taking home the three-piece shoe mold Sidney uses in class. These classes will likely fill up very quickly, our half day classes tend to be extremely popular! Experience is not needed for either of these classes, but if you do have isomalt experience, it will be helpful.

On Sunday, June 12, students are in for a real treat; Sidney is pulling out all the stops for her Dancing Dolphin isomalt cake topper class. In this hands-on class students will learn how to cast isomalt pieces and techniques on pulled and blown isomalt. Using these skills, Sidney will teach students how to create a gravity-defying dolphin leaping over waves and coral, accented with beautiful pearl bubbles. As with the two classes on Saturday, no experience is required, and all skill levels are welcome.
