Icing On The Cake – Different Styles

icing a cake treatment treatments finishes finish1st: ice the cake and make random 1/2 swirls  with a tip of a spoon and rotate them as you go

2nd: ice the cake and use a fork and run the tips of prongs into icing to make squiggle/straight lines (squiggle is more forgiving)

3rd: ice cake and use tip of spoon and  dig little trenches going around the edge and random on top

4th: ice cake and use a butter knife tip and drag it from bottom to top around edge and from edge into the center on top

Now you never have to worry about making the icing all nice and smooth (which will give you a quick headache). Use these designs with butter cream or any soft icings like cool whip icing. I hope you enjoy!

Milk Carton/Juice Sandwich/Snack Container

060b200360ebbe504b6962c5131875f6I have always tried my best to recycle/up-cycle in my families lives. I have always felt bad throwing these container from milk/juice out. (If you do please cut them down and recycle them). I came across this idea and wanted to share it with you. Follow the diagram above and cut with an exact o knife – and please be careful.If the knife slips (which it will want to do) there could be a nasty cut. Fold over and attack a velcro dot as shown. Makes a nice little snack/sandwich container.
