Baking on a gloomy day

23 Jan

It really has been a grey and slightly unpredictable day today, from out of nowhere hail to blue skies and back to pouring rain, the latter of which I got caught in on my way home from work, so what better way to cheer up a miserable evening than with a bit of baking.

Baking plain buns
I went for a very straight forward small plain bun, and for the topping I thought I’d make them extra cheerful with bright pink tropical icing and sugar strands. I made the icing with icing sugar mixed tropical smoothie (with a drop of pink food colouring) – nice and simple as well as being my favourite kind of topping, I don’t like butter icing (I just don’t like butter at all) but I love sweet buns!

Tropical cheery bright buns
Delightful – how do you cheer up a gloomy evening?
