Be Inspired by Animal Cakes
Animal Cakes...Cute, Charming and Fun
What's not to Like! When it comes to choosing cake styles, animal cakes are one of Lindy's personal favourites, but are they are they yours too?
"Creating a large pink pig was my first animal cake challenge. It was for my daughter Charlotte’s second birthday, it didn't exactly turn out as I’d hoped, I still had a lot to learn, but she was thrilled. My children have always been fascinated by the natural world so over the years I've had requests to make all kinds of animals, from sharks and sailfishes to squirrels and butterflies. I really enjoy creating these cakes, they almost seem to come alive and develop characters of their own. What I love most is, like us, animals are not 100% symmetrical so it doesn’t matter if say one ear is larger than another or if an eye is slightly lopsided, in fact I think it adds to the appeal!"

Party Animal Cakes Book Review
"Of all Lindy Smith's books (which I own) this is the one I prefer because it doesn't need special equipment. Designs are simply astonishing and easy enough to make, if you have some time on your hands. For most designs there is a cookie or a mini cake section and you will also learn tons of modelling techniques. Very highly recommended"
