Icing Sugar Cloud

That "pfft" of icing sugar that covers every surface in your kitchen. It happens to the best of us…


And so it begins… The Six Nations!

I’m going to be honest here, I am not a big rugby fan.  That might not sound like a big deal but, being Welsh, this is tantamount to sacrilege!  My husband does like a bit of rugby but, lucky for me, is not a die-hard fan.  He is, however, a fan of Die Hard.  As am I.  Awesome film.  The Six Nations is one of two occasions during the year – the other being the Autumn Internationals, where dearest husband does like to watch the rugby.  As a compromise, I get him to look after our son whilst he does so that I can get on with business.  Works for us!

You may find that I blog more over these coming weekends, especially during match times.  This can only be a good thing as far as I’m concerned.  I’ve actually been too busy baking for profit to blog!  Now, when I say baking for profit, I mean people are actually willing to pay me to bake things for them.  “Profit” refers to the fact that I cover my costs and make an hourly wage.  Admittedly my hourly wage is roughly £0.42 but still!  So, as a tenuous link, I’d like to share with you a picture of a cake I did that is shaped like a rugby ball.  In fact, it was pretty much the same size as a standard size 5 rugby ball used in International matches.  Doesn’t hold up so well to drop kicks though.

ImageSo, to all you rugby fans, enjoy the match.  To everyone else, enjoy the cake!
