Glaze Icing for Flooding and Decorating

Just recently I’ve been using glaze icing to decorate and flood biscuits instead of the usual royal icing,  not only do I find it a million times easier to work with, it gives you great results and tastes fab too!

Valentines Parfait

jan projects 325

 You know what everyone loves?  Parfait!  Seeing as hidden hearts are all over the place at the moment I thought I’d hide them in this lovely dessert too.

(And yes, I know its not baking but it is larking around in the kitchen so that’s good enough for me!)
