Cake icing master class

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.
