Another thing I didn't do was get inspired to bake a recipe posted earlier in the week. I love seeing and reading recipes but not all of them are quite to my tastes. Sugar free banana and sultana cake. Could there be a cake less suited to me?? I think not.
In order to make up for not have badly lit pictures of my pastry fail, I thought I’d include a sweet pic from We Heart It. I’ve been giving this site a lot of love lately.
And a recipe for the yummiest butter frosting I’ve made and can remember having. Hopefully you like it too… (icing/frosting is very much a case of each to their own I think). This recipe can easily be adapted to include lemon zest, vanilla essence, flavourings, etc etc.. Go to town my friends – I’d love to hear what you get up to if you use it.
250grams of icing sugar
80grams of unsalted butter (room temp)
25ml milk (I used semi but the original recipe I adapted used whole)
Beat the sugar and butter together using an electric mixer on slow until combined. Slowly add the milk, continuing to mix. Once combined, turn that baby up to high and beat for 5 minutes. Result? Light and fluffy and yummy. I use the juice of 3 lemons in mine as well and it was delish.
