More About the Author

World renowned for her designs, writing and teaching Lindy Smith is a highly experienced and talented British cake designer & sugarcrafter. 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 travels extensively for her work, gathering inspiration along the way, she has been very privileged to see first hand how sugarcraft and cake decorating is constantly evolving around the globe. 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.

1.0 out of 5 stars Nothing New 4 Nov 2010
If you already have Lindy Smith's 'Cakes to Inspire and Desire' you will be really disappointed as I was. The designs are identical only scaled down with a only a couple of new things put in. The couple of new things are not the type of mini cakes this book looks like it will contain, they re more for children i.e. a monkey cake. Personally I think this book has been a waste of money.

3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed 15 Nov 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Totally agree with review by S. Brignall. Was rather hoping to have some new mini cakes but basically the same as in Lindy's previous book. All that said, it is a lovely book to add to my collection.

2.0 out of 5 stars Extremely disappointing! 6 Mar 2011
By Lou P.
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I was extremely disappointed by this book. I admire Lindy Smith's work and own several of her books but on this occasion I felt cheated. As other reviewers state, if you already own a copy of "Cakes to inspire and desire" don't bother with this one! Nearly all of the cakes are mini versions of cakes in the aforementioned book. Very disappointing!!

4.0 out of 5 stars mini celebrations 17 Nov 2010
If you like celebrating with cakes - these mini versions are just the right size to say thank you, I love you and a lot more besides. If you want to be a sugarcraft expert, this is a book for you. Or if you just love eating all those little gorgeous creations yourself - what's stopping you? Apparently this book duplicates some recipes from one of Lindy's other books, but if like me, you have not got the others - in this book you will find the basic cake recipes and decoration ideas for 20 cakes. Includes detailed instructions and good photography throughout. This also makes a great gift in itself for any cake maker. This review first appeared on Karen Platt's book review website.

1.0 out of 5 stars What a disappointment 3 Jan 2011
HUGELY disappointed - as an earlier reveiwer said, it is nothing but a rehash of an earlier book. I usually love Lindy's books, but with this one I just feel I have bought the same book twice.....
