Recognised for her exquisite attention to detail and eye for colour Lindy has been translating her designs into sugarcraft for many years From humble beginnings in her home kitchen, experimenting with the 'basics' she learnt from an inspirational teacher, she soon discovered that sugar was the perfect medium through which to express her creative abilities and original ideas. In 1997 Lindy entered her first set of competitions and much to her own amazement received 3 gold awards. She had arrived in the 'cake' world! In 1998 she started writing regular features for "Cakes and Sugarcraft Magazine". Her first cake decorating book was published in 2000. She has continued to write books ever since, loving the freedom it gives her to be highly creative and original.

Lindy runs a successful company, Lindy's Cakes Ltd, based in Buckinghamshire, UK. The online shop side of the business specialises in sugarcraft products that she has 'hand picked' herself and uses in her books. She teaches sugarcraft at regular workshops throughout the year and continues to write about sugarcraft on a regular basis. Lindy Smith is passionate about her art and brings a fresh contemporary look to sugarcraft and cake design.

I am new to baking and this book has completely inspired me. It is packed with so much information, that even I feel confident enough to make one of the beautiful designs featured in this book. There are plenty of pictures to walk you through the process and to unlock your own creativity. Another great thing about this book are the matching cupcakes. Those will come in handy for times when I'm feeling creative but do not have time to make an entire cake. I'm looking forward to purchasing more of Smith's books.

From geometric to whimsical to out and out gorgeous, the cakes in the book are a great inspiration to decorators at all levels. The recipes are British, but the decorating ideas are universal and the work is beautifully precise and clean. The step-by-step instructions are really well photographed and easy to follow. I just with the book were longer! I want more!

I loved the pictures in this book, great cakes, but I'm a beginning cake decorator, several cakes in this book seemed a little difficult to me, besides the pictures, didn't really care for this book at all. "The Essential Guide To Cake Decorating" was a lot better for me!!!

I received this book as a birthday gift from my husband. It was well worth the purchase price. This book has fantastic step by step instructions and photos that make what might seem like challenging projects more approachable for the novice cake decorator.

I am a pastry student and have used ideas from this book to help me deisgn projects for class. I feel that this book will add a great deal to my repitore of decorating skills on future projects.

I am very pleased with this book. :O)

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is well written and easy to follow. I was expecting a book with all styles of cakes. These cakes only had the fondant instructions. Also disappointed because the cake recipes are all for girl cakes. I have 3 boys so this book is basically useless when baking a cake for a boy.

Format: Paperback
The best cake in the book is on the cover - but it isn't in the actual book!!

The designs of the other cakes are either plain or very eccentric with wire swirls etc coming out of them.

I wouldn't pay alot for this book - try to have a look inside one before purchasing.
