When should I ice my christmas cake? I baked it three weeks ago and will be using marzipan and white "snowy" icing. Does the marzipan need time to dry on the cake before I put the white icing on? Thanks from bernie

For christmas, I am planning to make gingerbread man cookies decorated with icing. But I do not know whether glace icing or royal icing would be better. The icing has to be hard enough to withstand transportation and handling as I am planning to send some in the mail to my friend in Australia too. Can I know the difference between glace icing and royal icing and which is better?
Hi. I'm really keen to send some home baked edible gifts to friends abroad this Christmas. I would love some ideas on things to bake that travel well and packaging tips to keep them at their best for longest! The treats would need to survive a UK to US postal adventure!

Hello! Please can you tell me where I can buy some Advocaat? Is it sold in Supermarkets? I have checked Tesco and M&S but no luck! Thank you Amyx
