My desk has been taken over by a big white box with a purple blob in it - drying out the royal icing prior to sanding.... yes, sanding. That's what I thought too, but apparently it's de rigeur when making a cake to sand it between layers. Go figure. My Mum never did it but then her icing bouts were usually peppered with lots of swearing and trying again.
In the meantime, I actually got around all my visitors last week, plus a few. So you might just see me this week! As Queen Julia and the lovely Doone are two of my Hens, and we're doing something craft related, I'll make sure I post a couple of tasteful pics next week!
