New cake decorating DVDs offer brides the chance to add a personal touch For the creative bride-to-be who not only dreams of making her own wedding cake, but is looking to create one that will be the talk of all her guests for years to come, help has arrived.

Cake entrepreneur Lindy Smith – the author of eight cake-decorating books – has just launched two step-by-step DVD guides to help and inspire budding bridal bakers – Lindy's Wonky Celebration Cakes and Lindy's Cake Jewellery Gems.

Whether you want to ensure your wedding cake reflects the latest trends, or simply fancy personalising your big day with a unique centrepiece, these guides will give you plenty of food for thought.

The DVDs include a wide range of insider tips - like how to get the most out of stencilling as a decorating technique, as seen in the 'Wonky' guide, or how to add beads and sparkling crystals for a glittering, bejewelled effect – all delivered in an accessible, unassuming manner. Packed with Lindy's extensive know-how, both discs also have helpful Q&A sections and trouble-shooting info.

"Every bride wants her wedding cake to play a starring role at her reception and I hope that my first DVDs will help make this a reality for everyone," says Lindy, who also runs an online shop,
