Cake icing master class

baking, cakes

Bit of a diversion for this post, while I reminisce over a great master class on icing techniques

learned at Mich Turner's Little Venice Cake Company in London.

The basket weave is royal icing which I have to admit I had avoided using before the course. I am pleased to say I haven't looked back and have made many successful batches of it since.

The straight line piping is tricky, I cannot lie, the wobbly bits are pointing away from the camera!!

One technique I have used a lot and so perfected are the fondant icing roses. Mich covers these brilliantly in her book. Find the YouTube instruction here.

This cake was made for a very beautiful girl and I think the simplicity of the pink roses works well.

Thank you for visiting, I love to hear your thoughts.

Welcome to my blog! After a L O N G break from blogging during which Instagram (vannilla)took over my life, I am returning in a more varied format. Yes, I will bake and have been a Thermomix users from the days before it was cult-like. I'll share the best but I will also include that other hobby in my life, photography from my small island and beyond. If you like what you see, I'd love to hear from you! Anne
