Celebrate life's memorable moments with a wonderful cake. From eye-catching stacked, tiered and column cakes, to romantic hearts and novelty ideas.

Lindy writes: "I have written this book bearing in mind those of you who, over the last few years, have constantly asked me “When are you going to write a book about your wedding and celebration cakes?” So here it is and I hope it answers most of your questions and gives you the confidence to experiment with your own designs. I have attempted to include as wide a range of cakes and techniques as a book of this size will allow.

Those of you who are familiar with my work will know that I love to be creative, to break away from convention and try something new. So I hope that this book will inspire you to do likewise. Another question I am frequently asked is where I get the ideas for my designs. The answer is probably through the art of observation and perception and the use to which these are put. Inspiration for the cakes in this book include the paintings of Gustav Klimt, the patterns of the ART Deco period, the colours used by Rennie Mackintosh and the current use of the scroll pattern in all decorative art forms.

For the cake shapes I have included column and stacked column cakes, an idea which I believe originated in Australia. Also included, for displaying multi tiered cakes, the very contemporary use of cake separators. As always I have used a bold selection of colours on my cakes. To help you with your colour combinations I have also included a detailed section that explores colour and its uses that I hope will give you the confidence to adapt my colour schemes to suit your own.
