Baking soda and baking powder, what is the difference?

How to make Cake icing 1 (Suku pa dorna bolo)

There is a several ways to make cake icing. In this Youtube video tutorial I will show you an easy way to make Cake icing. In another Youtube video tutorial I will show you another way to make cake icing.



For this Cake icing you will need the following ingredients:

5 cups of confectioner sugar3 Tablespoons of merinque powder10-11 Tablespoons of warm water
The confectioner sugar of Funcakes and meringue powder of Wilton are obtainable on Browny's Cakes webshop.
If this easy way is still too complicated for you, I have a more easier method. You can buy a Royal icing mix of Funcakes on Browny's Cakes webshop. You only need to add water to this Royal icing mix. More easier don't exist!

Enjoy the Youtube tutorial. If you have any question don't hesitate to leave a message behind.

You need 4 color of fondant to make your Santa Claus: Red,White,Black,Skin tone color ( to create this color you need Ivory color paste. Mix it with white fondant)
