Sponge..check, icing ....check, flower ...check.....job done!

So here are the cakes that I made yesterday for m.i.l...they came out ok after all. I am very happy with my icing...it's not one of my strong points so I went onto 'You tube' to see if anyone had videos of icing a cupcake and hay presto....so I've learned a new trick! They say your never too old!

The one thing I stress over when icing is having enough icing to cover all the cakes. I end up icing them  with not enough to cover them all or having loads left over because I have been too tight....and I really hate licking the remains of a frosting bowl!!! ...not!

Looks like I'll be in compitition with my little man............
