Viewtorial: The Icing on the Cake

That's right, I have made a viewtorial! I am someone who is definitely more confident behind the camera than in front of one, but I wanted to have a go at making a little video tutorial instead of simply writing a regular post about how to ice a cake. 

Every time I make a cake someone asks me what icing I have used. Every time I post a cake recipe I get emails asking about the icing. So, I thought I would answer you all at the one time!! (You may never ask another question again after you see this....but don't worry, I won't be turning my blog into a vlog). 

So here's my 


very awkward video that I made this afternoon showing you how I like to make my icing for cakes. I will apologise again for the amateurness of the video and until the last shot or two, I was doing it all myself, so there are lots of close ups of my hands as I click the power button on and off!!! (But, this was my attempt to be a fraction less awkward.... I get sooo nervous if Mr M tries interviewing me on this was the lesser of two evils!).

I've always used the same Butter Cream recipe, from the good old Australian Women's Weekly Children's Birthday Cake book!! It is consistently amazing. 

Butter Cream

4oz/125g butter

1.5 cups icing sugar

2 T milk (at room temperature)

And for the method....well, I guess you'll just have to watch!!!! (
