Cake entrepreneur Lindy Smith – the author of eight cake-decorating books – has just launched two step-by-step DVD guides to help and inspire budding bridal bakers – Lindy's Wonky Celebration Cakes and Lindy's Cake Jewellery Gems.
Whether you want to ensure your wedding cake reflects the latest trends, or simply fancy personalising your big day with a unique centrepiece, these guides will give you plenty of food for thought.
The DVDs include a wide range of insider tips - like how to get the most out of stencilling as a decorating technique, as seen in the 'Wonky' guide, or how to add beads and sparkling crystals for a glittering, bejewelled effect – all delivered in an accessible, unassuming manner. Packed with Lindy's extensive know-how, both discs also have helpful Q&A sections and trouble-shooting info.
"Every bride wants her wedding cake to play a starring role at her reception and I hope that my first DVDs will help make this a reality for everyone," says Lindy, who also runs an online shop, www.lindyscakes.co.uk.
