It’s not all about cakes at Lindy HQ! Creative writing is a big part of working life at Lindy’s Cakes – it’s how we communicate with our customers, cake friends and Lindy fans.
Through mediums such as Twitter, Facebook, Newsletters and our Blog we are able to share with you, often in ‘real time’, what we’re up to. We can also share thoughts and ideas with and we’ve always got new projects in the pipeline to shout about…
Lindy and I were commenting recently on how creative, talented and interesting our customers and students are. This was very apparent from the response we had to our cupcake wrapper competition in 2010.
We’ve decided to have an ‘about cakes‘ creative writing competition! So here it is…your chance to put your sugarcraft skills aside…hang up your pinny…grab a paper and pen…and get writing!
We are looking for fabulous articles to post on our Blog. There will be one overall winner and one winner from every category. The winners will be chosen by Lindy and the winning pieces will feature on our Blog in 2011.
Closing date is 1st March 2011 so there’s plenty of time to get your entry to us! Email your entry to KiwiRachel by clicking here.
5 Categories – choose your favourites and get creative…
- Best cake recipe.

Your article should be interesting and informative. It should be approx 500 words, and no more than 1000 please! Do include pictures – everyone loves to be inspired by pictures.
