Springtime & Weddings...
I think we thoroughly deserve Spring
this year! Ok, so I know it's going to happen anyway but if you are
feeling like we are feeling, here at Lindy HQ, we're ready for it! It's
been a long, cold, snow filled winter in the UK and we're over it! As
the first spring flowers peek through on these still chilly days we get a
glimpse of that lovely time of year when we can start de-layering and
start to feel warm sun on our faces once again. It makes you want to have a 'bit of
a sort out' too...be it a spring clean, a zshuzzing of your wardrobe,
getting out and attacking the garden or planning summer events. Speaking
of which we can't help but get a bit giddy and excited about a certain
Royal Wedding...of course we can't wait to see the cake or should it be
cakes! and the dress,
shoes, bouquet... But it isn't all about Kate & William, there will be
thousands of weddings this year and it is always interesting to see cake
trends develop as the season comes alive. We predict a nod to nostalgia
this year and colours of red, white & blue! In the meantime please
try Lindy's Hummingbird Cupcake recipe from her book
bake me I'm
yours...cupcake celebration' It's the perfect springtime recipe, fresh,
light and utterly moorish! Sunshine in a cake! We recommend the
beautiful Spring Viola as an adornment but decorate as you
wish...there's a feast of inspiration on our website,
and in Lindy's books!
Happy baking and decorating! Enjoy your spring revival!
