I is for…..the icing on the cake



As a baking blogger I have most types of icing. In my life I have probably tasted the good, the bad, and the ugly when it comes to icing. For the challenge and the letter I am linking you up with a post on an icing course I did at Mich Turner’s Little Venice Cake Company LVCC. My daughters bought me this course as a birthday gift and it was so much fun in addition to learning a lot of useful tips when making royal icing. I had always shied away from making royal icing – now I am really happy to make it and work with it. It always has a wow factor and isn’t super sweet.

You can find the link to this post here. Cake icing master class

If it hadn’t been for icing I may have had a hard time coming up with an old post for the letter I.

It would have fallen on my chocolate cake to cake rate american Independence Day which you can find here Independence Chocolate cake

hi! i am Anne (hence vANNilla) - two 'N's autocorrect WILL autocorrect - grrrrrr I can most often be found cooking up a storm in the kitchen,(with my trusty thermomix) behind a camera or a kindle. If you are a traveller/photographer my bog is @vannilla http://vannillarock.wordpress.com If you have come as a baker my blog is http://vannillarock.com i studied economics in Edinburgh in the early 70's; now retired from a day job, on paper i have plenty of time to explore the blogosphere and enjoy the shared experiences of others. like every other retiree i know we wonder how we fitted in a day job. I split my time between Guernsey,. In the Channel Islands -a 20-odd square mile island with 60thousand+ inhabitants- and Phoenix, Arizona. The mix is perfect- the former is beautiful but attacks of cabin fever are never too far away. Arizona, on the other hand IS king of the open road and has THE biggest bluest sky EVER. my blogs revolve around baking (vannillarock) and photography/travel if you like what you see please do start a conversation :)
