Toffee icing
« on: September 04, 2010, 10:59 »
I've got to make a cake for my twins birthday bash tomorrow - they have requested a toffee cake. I've made toffee muffins before by cutting up value toffees and  it works if you eat them warm, but not sure how I'd go about it in a traybake/slab cake?

Also - any ideas about toffee icing or buttercream?

I'm not good, I'm not bad - I'm just me, and sometimes I have to apologise for that ;)

I've just thought...OK it was painful, but could you use the caramel that you put in banoffee pie for a topping/filling (I just boil up condensed milk until it thickens)?

OOOh, that DOES look nice!

I've been meaning to make a gypsy tart for years!  I may make one this afternoon.  Very sweet and sickly I know, but it was the only dessert I liked at school!!!

Amazing how tastes differ - gypsy tart always had me running for the door - yuukk - now rice pud and jam - now you're talking!

Thanks mum, I'd forgotten sticky toffee pud - haven't made one for years, time to dust down the cake tin methinks - Have shown it to DS1 and got his approval  :D

This thread should be reported to the moderators. It is bad for my health.  :)

Great for my sweet tooth though!

I might have told you this before..... when I was nursing, an elderly gentleman with Alzheimers communicated his dislike of tapioca pudding non-verbally..............











ie - he threw it over me  :lol:  it went EVERYWHERE and I MEAN everywhere - complete change of clothes including underwear needed :D

Glad it was a success, but don't expect sympathy for feeling sick, cos we didn't get any cake! :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:
