It’s easy when you know how. Everyone was given a greaseproof paper cutout to make an icing bag, He demonstrated how to make the pink roses that were to decorate the top after putting the loops and patterns and ribbon on the first cake all the colours are labeled as Tony admits to being colour blind so he sees them differently, the second one was a children’s delight decorated with Kit and Kat and Maltese’s ‘.
