    An easy to make egg-free icing that works great for decorating cakes for birthdays. When you need to add colouring to icing, use colour paste. If you use liquid colouring, you may need to add more icing sugar.

    This is a rich dark chocolate ganache that has loads of uses. It can be whipped to use as a filling or icing, or simply poured over any cake you like.

    This is delicioius. It's not as sickly as buttercream but is much nicer than plain glace icing. It sets, but not too solidly, so it's in between butter icing & glace. This makes enough to ice and fill and 8inch cake.

    Yummy, sweet icing, to match with the damson and white chocolate cupcake recipe!...or just any cupcakes :)! This goes particularly well with regular chocolate cupcakes, vanilla cupcakes, and coconut cupcakes.
