icing rosesStuck for ideas on how to spiff up the next birthday cake you graciously whip up? Well, let us give you a helping hand. We've made our (very first!) how-to video for creating lovely buttercream roses.

An announcement...

We are extremely delighted/proud to (finally) be launching our very own YouTube Gransnet channel!

Deciding on our first food-related video required lots of head-scratching, copious cups of tea and serious slices of cake. Until we realised the answer was literally right in front of us. Cake it is.

So, ta da! Here is the finished product. A quick and ridiculously easy way to transform a standard Victoria sponge into a vision of loveliness. It's perfect for birthdays, anniversaries, even weddings - all you need is the right icing nozzle


What's next?

Well, that's largely up to you. Do check out our channel and subscribe if you'd like to be kept up to date on our next video. And we'd also love to hear what you'd like to see in future. More baking, hair styling, exercise, make up tips? Do get in touch or start a thread and we'll see what we can do...
