Ok, dont laugh... this was actually my first attempt making icing (sad.. i know). I've come accross so so many blogs and fotopages with beautiful cupcakes decoration - soft icing, hard icing etc. i've been told by Nina (whom i havent met but would love to one day) that K.Muna does beautiful icing (which is no surprise to me since she's really a pro). she could probably cook single handedly, or when her eyes are shut and still i wouldnt be surprised! another baker who loves decorating and good at it as a friend of mine, Dayat (where's your bloglink la makcik). and not forgetting Wiz, who has been leaving comments on my blog, she's really good in decorating as well! and zara & zaria's mama, who once asked me if i could teach her do icing, well, here's the answer! i think you're way advanced than me! and last but not least, yaya for commenting i should try doing cupcakes in the last post. this entry proves that i suck! big time! i envy you bunch who can really decorate your cakes!
My brother in law's mum does wedding cakes and she's got real talent for this. they did our wedding cake and it was beautiful! i was told by my mum that my grandmother too, once upon a time, makes beautiful, good icing. why oh why didnt i follow her footsteps (the icing bit).
I am beginning to feel that i am useless at this. it was suppose to be a simple icing but it turned up to be 'slimy', perhaps its too soft, too much butter, i dunno... perhaps blue is not a good colour for icing? (yea right, blame it on the colour!)
I'm putting up these pictures (shamelessly) simply to share with you lot. no point putting up the recipe! coming soon : my trial icing session!
Have a good weekend everyone! i shall keep on trying...
