Lindy’s imaginative cakes first featured in print in 1997 and have continued to make appearances in numerous magazines ever since. In the early days Lindy wrote regular articles for cakes and sugarcraft magazines, then as her wedding cake business grew her wedding cakes and toppers featured in dozens of different wedding publications. Today Lindy’s stunning cakes often make guest appearances in many magazines, including popular cake decorating magazines around the world.

It was ‘Cakes and Sugarcraft’ magazine that first approached Lindy to write articles for their publication, and her features became a regular part of the magazine for a number of years. Lindy has continued, from time to time, to contribute to this and other cake decorating publications both in the UK and around the world.

Lindy’s articles are too numerous to mention in detail here, however below are some magazines that feature Lindy’s amazing cakes on their front covers.

“My first article was probably the hardest and most difficult to write.  I had no previous experience and remember poring over articles by well known sugarcrafters of the time to source ideas and guidance as to how I should write up my feature. Looking back however, the numerous features I wrote were an excellent training ground for my book writing which was to come later. If you aspire to write your own book one day, why not try submitting your ideas to a cake decorating magazine first – I know they are always looking for new and exciting material and the experience will be invaluable” Lindy

“ Today I am usually asked by magazines to submit cake photos, however magazines are often only too happy to consider new material. So if you have good quality, high resolution (300dpi min) photographs you would like to share with others, why not send them to your chosen publication – who knows where it may lead…..! Good luck” Lindy
