I just got an ad via email and was wondering if anyone has tried this product.  It was from Sweet Wise and they have a royal icing mix that you just add water to.  Was curious as to whether anyone has tried this product or one similar to it and how they liked it.  (I've posted it here because I use royal more for cookies than cakes,)
Cat, so sorry you still haven't been feeling well, but glad that you seem to be on the mend.  Take care and enjoy your day!
This sounds really interesting, but most cakes don't call for a pound of flour, so am assuming you would have to reduce the glycerine according to the amount of flour used in the recipe.  And does this only work with AP flour, or will it also work with cake flour and/or self rising?
Beautiful cakes!
I don't blame you for wanting to take a year off from the Oscar party.  You're better off getting your strength back and feeling much better before trying to be hostess to guests.  We really needed the rain and I'm glad it was here, but what we need more is a really good COLD storm to generate more snow!  If we don't get that snowpack to have all the runoff from it melting, we're still going to be in trouble this summer.  It could be cold and snowy up in the mountains...
That was my thought, too.  I have tomorrow without the puppy so I plan on getting online and seeing what I can find on YouTube.  And yes, puppies are a handful but it's so fun to watch them grow and learn so quickly!  He's already so much bigger than the first time I saw him!  My son brought him over right after he picked him up, and he's already almost twice the size he was then!  Only problem is he LOVES to be outside but he's too young to leave out there by himself, so...
Practicing making buttercream ruffles.  I have a niece who wants a cake with ruffles and I haven't tried them before.  I made a ruffle cake for here at the house and didn't like the way they turned out, so I'm trying to find a better way to do them.  I haven't done the ruffles before (I always get vertical and horizontal mixed up, but I think it's horizontal ruffles I need to make).  She also wants 2 ruffle flowers near the top of the cake, but still on the side, so I need...
Cat, sorry to hear you aren't feeling well.  Hope you're better soon.
Sammy, I could be wrong, but I think she was correcting typing errors only...a little more proofreading being done.  A lot of people were clamoring to get the recipe, so the first printing was done in a really rush job.  I had a problem getting my copy to come through, so we had a few emails back and forth and I can't remember exactly what she had stated in one of the messages, but I do believe that's what she was planning on doing, so she probably pulled the recipe back...
I will add....the recipe is well worth paying for.  It is a fabulous recipe and has several variations you can make as well.  I've tried several of them and all are good.  You will not regret purchasing this recipe and supporting a small business at the same time.  It really IS that good!
