Inspire:

Lindy, who is always looking for new ideas, has been inspired by ‘Victorian flower kissing balls’ to create her own cake version of this lovely traditional  ball shaped flower posy, as featured in her book  ‘The Contemporary Cake Decorating Bible’.

Why:

Learn the secret of successfully covering a ball shaped cake and have fun completely covering it in flowers. A beautiful celebration cake that can be used for a variety of occasions.  This cake is quite simply stunning.

Who:

This is the perfect class for students who have experience of covering cakes  but wants to try their hand at covering a ball cake. This class is designed for intermediate sugarcrafters so you do need to be comfortable with working with sugarpaste and covering cakes.

What the course will cover:

Lindy will teach you how to cover a ball cake.  You will create the flower decorations using moulds to completely cover the cake, finishing with a pretty ribbon bow.  Lindy will also teach you how to cover and stencil your cake board using edible lustre dust to create a subtle shimmering effect.

What you can expect:

Lindy will show you the technique of covering a ball cake and achieving a professional finish.  Lindy teach you how to use silicone moulds to create stunning  flowers. These moulds come in many sizes, shapes and styles so you will have lots of time to experiment and create a stunning floral display for your cake.

Our workshops are fun, informative and supportive. You will be taught by Lindy herself who is recognised as one of the most exciting contemporary experts in sugarcraft. 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 your very own Pretty Flower Posy 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.

What our students say:

“I just wanted to say thank you so much for yet another fantastic course.  Each time I come on a course I am amazed by how wonderful it is and by all the new techniques I learn. Perhaps it is a good job I don’t live closer because I am sure I would use up all my annual leave (and money) attending every class.  They are my idea of heaven. Anyway – thanks so much and hope to see you all again soon.” Amanda
