Bird house chic carving class with Lindy

Bird house chic


On trend and highly desirable, birds and decorative detail come together here in a beautiful carved bird house chic cake.


As featured in Lindy’s award winning NEW book  published in September 2013, be one of the first to create this sensationally pretty and soon to be very popular cake!  An excellent introduction to cake carving.


You do need to be comfortable with working with sugarpaste. No previous carving experience is needed. A previous Lindy’s workshop would also be advantageous but not obligatory.

Carving the cake to shape

What the course will cover:

You will learn the secrets of how Lindy creates this fabulous cake in just one day. The class will focus on how to carve and cover the cake and adorn it with stencil decoration.  Lindy will give you lots of ideas and tips to personalise your own cake on the day.

What you can expect:

Lindy has devised a step-by-step approach to this cake which means it becomes very manageable for all. Expert tuition by Lindy is the main focus of the day. As with every Lindy Smith workshop you will have Lindy and her team supporting you every step of the way. Our workshops are fun, informative and supportive. We pride ourselves on our ability to make our students feel at ease and encouraged, giving assistance where needed and space when not. You will end the day having created a stunning bird box cake and will have gained valuable sugarcraft knowledge, techniques and tips for use in all aspects of your sugarcraft. We want you to have fun, learn a lot and become a cakefriend of Lindy’s Cakes Ltd.
