It’s Wonky time again! Yet another sell-out workshop! Lindy’s trademark cake leans majestically for all to see, for this cake never fails to inspire and impress. What a great class today, a really enthusiastic group of students with super ideas and a colourful approach to this iconic cake! This is the course that takes you to another level with carving. The pace starts fairly slowly as Lindy guides you carefully through the preparation and then on to the carving of the wonky tiers. Of course no workshop is without it’s challenging cake! Lindy and Sally are experts at rescuing cakes that haven’t come out of the oven quite as one would have hoped!! The important thing is to bring your cake along in all it’s ‘hasn’t quite worked’ glory! We have lots of tricks and information on preparing your cakes for covering and to be able to show you in person is a bonus. Carving this cake is not for the faint -hearted but deconstructed ‘Lindy style’ she makes you feel you can do it! And you can! It is crucial to get this right and Lindy will spend a lot of time with her students getting this stage right. We were impressed by the carving today – good teacher I say!! From here Lindy moves on to covering the cakes in sugarpaste, placing the cake on the covered board, tiering the cake and of course decorating. We do enjoy watching this part evolve. The colours you choose, the combinations, the decorating ideas….
Wow! What a collection. It’s a lot to get through in a day and some students will finish their cakes at home. But as you can see they are well on their way to be the glamourous Wonky cake they all came to achieve! Well done ladies – you’ve done a great job on your first Wonky!
Our next Wonky course will be in the Autumn. However if you would like to do a ‘carving’ based sugarcraft course then we recomend the ‘Floral Heart’ 21st May workshops. Click here for more information.
