Sugarcraft Workshops and Classes

The cake decorating classes we run at Lindy’s Cakes are based in glorious South Shropshire, either next to the popular Ludlow Food Centre or in Lindy’s lovely home studio a few miles away. We arrange a select number of workshops throughout the year and organise tailor-made classes for individuals and small groups of up to six people. Classes are fun, friendly and welcoming. We want you to make the most of your time with us and for it to be an enjoyable, educational and rewarding experience. Many of our students return time and time again and some travel great distances for the experience of being taught by Lindy.


Lindy can teach you a huge range of skills from the basics of how to ice a cake successfully to advanced carving and piping skills. She can also help keep you up to date with all the latest trends in cake decorating. Classes can focus on cakes, cookies, cupcakes or cake toppers or a combination that suits. Everyone is welcome whatever their age or ability.

Popular examples:

  • 1-2-1 classes to improve or learn new cake decorating skills or techniques
  • Pre-wedding mother and daughter sessions
  • Family fun classes to get everyone involved in the kitchen
  • Hen parties for brides that love baking
  • Classes for cake friends keeping in touch
  • Children’s parties where the birthday boy or girl loves cake decorating

Online Cake Decorating Tutorials

We know that it is not possible for all of you be taught by Lindy in person, so Lindy in collaboration with the US company has produced the next best thing – online interactive classes. So far Lindy has produced three classes; an Art Deco design based class, a vintage birdcage inspired class and her latest ‘Contemporary Cake Design’ class.
