Anyone who is around me for more than an hour knows I have a weakness for icing. It is, by far, the biggest reason I will never be in a bikini ever again. When I married Philip, my only instructions to the baker that made our cake was to put double butter cream/almondine icing on the outside with a really thick layer of raspberry cream cheese frosting in between the layers. I was warned that before the cake made it to the table, a "wall" of icing might collapse. It was a risk I was willing to take.
So I'm watching the Today Show this morning with my friends Kathie Lee and Hoda and they introduce the latest fad, ICING SHOTS! A quick Google of this simple concept shows that many bakeries are offering these tantalizing little sugar treats. I've not seen it hit Birmingham yet but then again, I've been avoiding bakeries since Helen's birth. I'm feeling like there will be some vulnerable days coming soon where I might have to explore the city for favorite icing flavors!
