Birthday Cake - Icing

1kg Regalice
2 Tsp Apricot Jam
icing sugar - to dust

Roll out 1 kg of regalice on a icing sugar dusted surface until thin and is large enough to completely cover the cake. Brush the cake with the jam to ensure the icing doesn't slip off. Lift the rolled out icing with a rolling pin and drape over the cake. Trim off the excess with a sharp knife and slightly tuck in the icing underneath to give a neat edge.

Top Tip: Do not buy an icing smoother, instead get a piece of the excess roll into a ball and wrap up with cling film, this will smooth out any finger prints and bumps on the cake.
