Lindy Smith has a huge following internationally, so it’s not surprising that her fan-base reaches as far as Asia, the Americas , Australia, New Zealand, South Africa and the Pacific Rim countries.  She has, over the years, taken up many opportunities to teach in countries as diverse as Brazil, Australia and Israel. With a passion for learning Lindy loves to learn as much as to teach. Meeting students from different cultures exposes her to new taste sensations and  different ideas for cake decorating.

Sharing her enthusiasm and love of sugarcraft is one of Lindy’s obsessions. Lindy not only finds teaching and demonstrating hugely satisfying but she also gains a true insight into what her students find tricky or daunting which she then uses to inspire her teaching.

“One of my first international teaching trips was a wonderful trip to New Zealand back in 2002. I was invited by the New Zealand cake decorators Guild to be their international guest at their biannual conference in New Plymouth. This fabulous event was then followed by a tour around both North and South Islands visiting various sugarcraft clubs along the way. What a wonderful way to see such an beautiful interesting country!

Since then I have taught overseas in many different countries and locations. From sugarcraft and decorating organisations, such as ICES in the States and the Australian National Cake Decorators Association, to sugarcraft shops and schools with their own teaching facilities, to independent groups of fellow cake decorating enthusiasts”
