Wonky cakes – nearly finished!!


If there is one cake that shouts “by Lindy Smith” it is this one! Lindy’s iconic Wonky cake is a favourite that amazes and delights and yours is just a workshop away.


As seen in Lindy’s ‘Cakes to Inspire & Desire’ book, Lindy has developed an excellent step-by-step workshop that gives you all the knowledge to create this iconic cake yourself.

One of Lindy’s students in action!

Suitable for the confident and advanced sugarcrafter you will have carved a cake before and be comfortable with using and covering a cake in sugarpaste. Ideally you will have already attended one of Lindy’s classes.

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 the wonky layers,  cover them and then stack them. You will create your own 2 tier version of this cake then adorn it with decoration as time permits. Lindy will give you lots of ideas to use on the day or to ‘take-away’ and continue at home.

What you can expect:

Wonky wonders – yes it is possible to carve a wonky cake!!!

This action packed fast moving class is challenging but, 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. 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 Wonky Style 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:katies wonky cake

“Hi All, I just wanted to say thank you again for Friday’s class, it was fantastic I just wish I could come every day! I thought I would show you the finished thing, I had to finish it in a rush for a birthday party today and I made some cupcakes to go with it, so chuffed with the results I feel like I have finally got somewhere and the class was money well spent. I will definitely be back – take care see you soon” Cheryl Swallow
