Neil suggested I may still be at the demi-Goddess stage. I'm thinking the L-plate Goddess!
I didn't think cupcakes could be so tricky but something tells me I maybe well have omitted the magic ingredient of 'patience'. I also didn't realise icing bags need a connector doofer (well, ok, I dimly remember my mum had one now). I was sure a plastic food bag and nozzle combo would be fine - queue plastic food bag and icing explosion. So then I tried sellotape (not Duck tape -an obvious flaw). Queue icing bag and icing explosion when the nozzle got blocked. Neil found me dripping in chocolate icing in the kitchen with a big grin on my face and knew I'd finally flipped. Still, 3 batches of cakes and the weekend is off to a rocking start!
Oh yeah, and something very shiny, new and carbon is arriving soon....
