It didn't go quite as planned. I realised too late that I didn't have quite enough icing sugar for the decorations. So I bulked it out with a bit of ordinary sugar. Of course the icing wouldn't go through the small nozzle I had, the bag burst and chocolate icing went everywhere. I scooped it up and scraped it into another bag and tried with the only other nozzle I have .........which is huge.
I'd love to say my five year old helped me with this, but I don't have one, and I just wondered if I'd be eligible for the "worst icing done by a grownup" award?
Moving swiftly on, today I made myself a peg bag. So here are the in progress shots, this is like a 'tutorial' thing in case any of you two who read my blog have a burning desire to make a peg bag and don't know how to do it!
Lay paper pattern onto material. I'm using the hanger and shape from an old peg bag, but a child's clothes hanger would do.
