We sure do know that the wedding season is upon us when nearly all of our students are making cookies for weddings this summer! Wedding cookies are becoming the favour of choice at the chicest of weddings and Lindy’s Designer Wedding cookies are no exception. This is a fantastic course for all levels of sugarcrafter. Not only do you get to decorate a lot of cookies you will experiment with a number of techniques and styles. From Lindy’s iconic ‘Wonky’ style wedding cake shape, to hearts and shoes. Today we used embossing, stencilling and piping techniques. We worked with sugarpaste, royal icing and lustre dust. Lindy will always go over the basics of working with sugarpaste and how to get the best out of it. She will also talk about the baking of your cookies. Lindy is passionate about what is under sugarpaste, she is interested in good ingredients and recipes that deliver. Lindy says it has to taste delicious as well as look fabulous!
We had a lot of fun today. Lindy and the team always enjoys hearing stories from our students. What got them intersted in sugarcraft, why they chose this course. We talked a lot about weddings today, venues, dresses, dates and of course cakes and cookies. We had one ‘bride to be’ today, one mother of the bride, one mother of groom, one sister of a bride and one student there in a professional capacity with wedding orders for the summer! We also had two members of Lindy’s staff. Yes, the office was very quiet back at Lindy’s Cakes HQ today because Ruth and Rachel joined us for a ‘day out’ experiencing a Lindy’s workshop! They did a great job too and came away with lots of lovely cookies to share with their famillies and friends, who I am sure would have been very impressed. Although Ruth told me that she wouldn’t let anyone eat hers! Which is an interesting point… these Cookies are edible art but can you bring yourself to take a bite! Lindy encourages all of her staff to do workshops. It helps us know more about the business and gives us the chance to watch Lindy doing what she does best.
Super work today ladies! They look lovely. And here’s a thought…if you are at a wedding in the future and see wedding cookies on the table… perhaps they have been inspired by Lindy’s Designer Wedding Cookies!
