Merrow have stars in the making not only on the bowls green but also in cake decorating! What a morning; we started with learning how to marzipan the cake (but missed out the bit about eating the trimmings if you were doing this at home) then making an icing bag and royal icing for sticking on or piping!
But then the fun began!!! Having seen all the finished cakes I was quite pleased I didn’t know how good they all were at this sort of thing, otherwise I might not have offered to help. We had some brilliant designs… one, the rocking robin for instance, was the tree going up the over the top of the cake. My demonstrated version looked more like a long slug and the robins a bit evil looking!
It was great fun to share my knowledge of cake decorating and to enthuse them all hopefully to do the same again next year. As well as being a very enjoyable morning we raised £55 for the club funds.
Happy Christmas to you all and if you do have your own Christmas cake, try eating it with a bit of stilton…its scrummy!
