I'm feeling a lot better today, my throat is not sore, although I do have a bit of a headache which does not want to shift. Seems as though I don't have the nasty bug Dave has, thankfully! He went to a Walk- in Medical Center yesterday in London, the doctor listened to his chest looked down his throat and agreed he had what everyone else has, and prescribed 1 teaspoon of honey mixed with 1 gram of Turmeric 2-3 times a day.......... After a bit of research on good old google Dave decided to give it a try, he's had 2 doses and says he feels much better. Who would have thought it? I'm waiting to see if his teeth and tongue turn yellow!!!!!!!
I have just piped dots onto the icing and used gold leaf here and there, I've never used it before but thought I'd give it a go as I don't own any food colouring. I did think about adding some acrylic paint to the icing but thought twice ( that is a joke by the way)! Jacqueline told me a story today ( I hope she doesn't mind me sharing it) She was in a cake decorating shop buying bits to decorate her cake, (take a look at her blog Charlotte's cake is lovely) another customer was buying edible glitter and said to the assistant "I didn't know you could buy the edible stuff, I usually just put craft glitter over cakes" The assistant was astounded and said "you don't eat it do you?". "Yes it just passes through". I can always rely on Jacqueline to make me laugh and cheer me up. Moral of this story is all that glitters is not edible!!!!!! The gold leaf is.
