• 2014 – Happy New Year!

    Last year was a life changing, difficult and interesting year all together. I am not gong to talk about what happened last year because i already done it in a different post. I am hoping that this year will come with more happiness then the year before though.

Christmas cake is actually fairly straightforward to put together, but getting a pristine finish to the icing can be a little tricky, especially if you’re not used to using ready to roll icing.
