My new icing nozzles arrived this week so I was excited to try them!The waves were made using the swirly petal nozzle, starting at one end, making layers moving the nozzle up and down, I tried to only loosely mix in the blue coloring to get swirls but all the icing mixed in the bag so next time I'll just use more blue.
The octapodes were made using different sizes of circular nozzle. I tried to make them bright orange but the food coloring didn't want to mix to that. I might have to try gels.Sadly, we lost a few limbs transferring them from the baking sheet to the cake. Next time I'll just have to bite the bullet and ice straight onto the cake!
Cake: basic chocolate cupcake- 2 eggs, 4oz sugar, 3oz flour, 1oz cocoa powder, 1tsp baking powder, 2caps vanilla
Icing: 250g butter and icing sugar, 1cap vanilla
You rip what you sew!
