Royal Icing ~ How Do You Make Royal Icing?

by Maggie on May 18, 2015

old-times_013

 

When some people hear the words “Royal Icing” they turn pale and shake in their shoes, yes I have seen it with my own eyes. Royal Icing they believe is far too hard to make and also to work with, but I am here to tell you that it is easy if you know how.

My Grandad was a Master Baker and to him decorating a cakewas an art form, but one he said that anyone could learn. Grannie used to laugh and say “He taught me Margie enough said?”

His Christmas cakes were always in demand. He used to make so many with each one decorated by him or Grannie. Every year, they would make each of their 11 children and their families a huge Christmas cake, plus Farmer John up the road “Who Never got married” Grannie would whisper to me “Margie we will have him down for Christmas Dinner and he can take a cake back, make him feel special” then one for 3 brothers who lived in a little run down house on a property near Grannie and Grandads “They have no idea Margie, they find it hard to cook and clean, I will make them one, they have no one to look after them the poor dears” and so it went on with the list growing bigger of the cakes to be given away, then added to the list were the ones others paid for. I think you get the picture.

Diabetic Recipes that Are Yummy!

January 30, 2015

Today I would like to discuss a little about Diabetes.

My husband was diagnosed with diabetes some time ago and felt that he was hit from above with a ton of bricks. His diabetes is controlled through diet and exercise, so he is very lucky.

When we went back into his family history, we found that diabetes was on his families side plus I knew it was already on my families side, so we made sure our grown up children were very aware of what is was and to have their blood sugar levels checked by the Doctors on a regular basis, plus also to stick to a very healthy diet and exercise regime which interesting enough our family has always done.

Yummy Christmas Cake – The History

December 13, 2014

Christmas cake is an old English tradition which first appeared as plum porridge. It is claimed that the eating of the porridge on Christmas Eve, became popular because of the benefit was said to “line the stomachs” of the diners following a day of fasting. As time went by, dried fruit, spices and honey were added to the porridge mixture, which eventually lead to the Christmas pudding we know today.
Later it is said at some time in the 16th century, the oatmeal was removed from the original recipe, and butter, wheat flour and eggs were substituted. These new ingredients helped hold the mixture together and in what resulted in a boiled plum cake, which also had the effect of improving the texture and the flavour. These changes had a major influence on the popularity of the “Cake”.
