Blogmeet & A Finale

My blogmeet gift is all packed up and ready to go!

The lemon slice is ready to be eaten.....although I still have a real problem with making icing correctly. It's too runny again! I just can't seem to work it to the correct consistency when I'm mixing it. Of course, I never realise until I've already tipped it out and then it's too late....lucky it still tastes nice.

Yippee! Today is the 31st of May so I made it all the way through 'A Post a day in May'. I have posted every single day for 31 days in a row.....phew! Did anyone notice that the posts were getting very short and sweet towards the end? Somedays, I was really running out of things to say.

Hope everyone is having a lovely weekend.....I'm off to see some other crafty chicks!

STOP IT!!!! You're making me jealous. I went to the first blog meet up last Feb and it was so much fun. Aand all those handmade things....swooooon.

Now, about that icing save me a piece cause it looks good to me in the photo but....have you tried the this method? ..Use pure icing sugar. Mix icing ingredients to a fairly thick consistency and then rest the bowl on top of a pot of simmering water and mix till the icing melts. Spread on your sweet yummies. I love it because it sets really well, but it miht help cause you can mix it up thick to start.
