Summertime and the livin is easy….. what a way to spend a day… creating bright summer inspired cookies. These small intricately designed cookies are are huge hit at Lindy’s cakes and judging by the response you have told us about, what your friends & family say, they’re a hit at home too. What I love about our cookie courses is that you can arrive at our workshops with little or no experience working sugarpaste and come away with lots of little pieces of art to showcase your day! Because you are working with such small canvasses, so to speak, you can experiment over and over again with the techniques that Lindy teaches you. And without wanting to diminish Lindy’s talent, or her work, these cookie techniques are surprisingly easy. Without a doubt everyone who does this course is amazed at what they achieve… and like summer…it is so good for the soul!
Today we worked with Lindy’s Vanilla cookie & Gingerbread cookie recipes, from her Bake Me I’m Yours Cookie book. We decorated the cookies using stencils, cutters, embossers, impression moulds and plunger cutters. It was super to see different styles coming through as the day went on. The decoration on the swimsuits, the embossing on the flip flops, flowers everywhere and even chocolate chips in the ice-creams! Yum I love mint choc chip ice-cream! The possibilities are endless and we at Lindy’s cakes welcome individual style!
We also love to hear stories about our students…why they like working with sugarpaste…why they came on a particular course…what inspires them. Today we had Mum Sue with daughters Sophie & Nicola. They came for a girls day out and to spend some time together before Sophie has her baby! What a lovely idea. We also were delighted to have our colleagues Susie & Annette join us today. Lindy encourages all her staff to do workshops if there are spaces available. Susie, from our mail order department, commented that it will be good to see our products being used! And the lovely Julie, veteran workshopper and veteran cookie maker! Julie was keen to know the techniques that are unique to summer cookies, because they are so different and beautiful. Beats a Battenburgh cake any day hey Julie!!!
