And let me tell you these taste every bit as good as they look.   My only regret was that the royal icing turned a little bit more runny than I would have liked, but  for the first timer like me I think it was ok.   Royal icing is a hard white icing, usually made from softly beaten eggwhites, powdered sugar and  lemon or lime juice.   The recipe for the royal icing I have tried here is something I saw on TLC. I have used sugar syrup instead of powdered sugar.



  1. For the cake batter. Beat the oil and sugar. Beat the eggs separately and add to the oil and sugar mixture and beat again. Sieve the maida and baking powder atleast twice. Now gently fold the maida gradually in the liquid mixture. Add the vanilla ess

Hi! I am Sonali, mom to a fast growing teenager and a homemaker.I love to cook, read and travel ( and in that order). I believe that travel keeps the cook ever so innovative. Each time I travel, I scourge the market places and eateries for some new ingredient or recipies. I believe that every type of cuisine has its own story to relate……One that’s fascinating.Being born and brought up in Mumbai which is often called “a melting pot of culinary delights” helped me explore and experiment with a wide range of cuisines.So come share with me the tang of lime, the bite of chilli, the fresh herbs, the crunch of raw veggies and experience the wide spectrum of textures and sharp flavours of different cusines.
