Isn’t it crazy how on Holidays or special occasions you realize how fast time has gone by?? Honestly, weren’t we just shopping for Christmas presents and picking out cute outfits for New Year’s Eve? Where did the month of January go? It sure is hard to believe that we are now half way through February!
For many reasons the month of February has not gone as I had hoped. I’m staring at you Home Depot! What should have been a quick 2 day install of our kitchen floors, actually took closer to 2 weeks! They had ordered the wrong color for our ceramic tiles and figured that out AFTER they had finished demolishing the entire original kitchen floor! While waiting for the new special order tiles to arrive, the entirety of our kitchen was sitting in our living room (yes, stove as well! Sniff). Some people might have rejoiced in having an excuse to avoid cooking and order take out for two weeks, but for me, this was torture! What was I suppose to do in terms of “baking” without a kitchen?
Finally, my kitchen has been reinstalled and I was back at it again! For you on Valentine’s Day, I present a new Bertie’s Bakery Staple, a feather light, meringue based, no butter, icing! I think I shall call it Light as a Bertie’s Feather Icing! … or not, that’s kind of long.
As always the recipe is listed below. Before that, I’m posting the obligatory glamor shots of the icing!
You know you want to try it! It’s actually one of the easiest icings I’ve created to date, and yet one of the best!
Happy Valentine’s Day, and thanks for stopping by!
