I love baking and whilst I'm not the worlds best baker, I do think that I have some skill. I'm quite ambitious with my cake decorating and have spent many hours in the past trying to create something that looks as pretty as the image in my head. I'm not always successful but my family happily eat anything I bake and decorate. Renshaw sent some decorating products to us here at AMR for us to use for some Easter baking. Like me you might not have heard of Renshaw before but they have been supplying products to the trade for over 100 years and have now brought a range of products to market for home bakers and it was from this range that they sent me some bits to try.
The magic melting icing is a great idea, but I didn't get along with it very well. I made some sponge cakes which I cut up in to smaller pieces and then half dipped and half poured icing on to the cake to try and get it all covered. It was just too runny and and I couldn't get a good covering all over the cake, but as I said before my family happily eat anything I bake and they really loved the flavour of the icing.
The Renshaw products are available in supermarkets (I've seen them in Waitrose, Tesco, Sainsburys and Asda and I believe from what I read Morrisons sell them too) and you can follow Renshaw on Facebook and get some great inspiration from the Renshaw My Bakes website. Right now I'm heading back to the kitchen to see if I can pipe anything less offensive looking!
We were sent some Renshaw products to review.
