You don’t have to be a talented artist to create some striking paint effects.  Let Lindy guide you in the art of painting on a canvas of sugarpaste to personalise all your celebration cakes and cookies, and create exactly the effect you desire.


Once you know how to paint on sugarpaste, anything is possible and you can create the most stunning effects on all your cakes and cookies.
