  5. Icing can be frozen for up to a month. Defrost throughly and allow icing to reach room temperature before using. You may need to beat it to soften a little bit before use.

CITRUS SYRUP DRIZZLE

You can add the sugar syrup on to cakes and cupcakes which will add moisture and flavour.  Brush the syrup on the cupcakes/cake as soon as you take it out of the oven as this will help the syrup to soak into the cake.   If you feel the cake is a bit dry you can pour most of the syrup onto the cake, likewise, if the cake is softer and more moist, then just pour a smaller amount over the cake.  Don’t pour all the syrup on the cake otherwise it will become too soft and unstable.

INGREDIENTS:

FOR 4 – 6 CAKES:

1 cup water, 1 cup castor sugar, juice of 2 – 3 lemons or oranges

Method:

  1. Put the water into a microwave jug and cook on high for 1 minute and stir
  2. Add any flavouring and allow to cool
  3. Store in airtight container in the fridge for up to one month
