A few weeks ago I wanted to make a cake and I didn't really want to make my own icing. The powdered sugar I can get here is not as fine as the stuff from the States and well, the icing just doesn't come out as smooth. Sooo, I went over to our bakery supply store hoping that I would find some American canned icing or perhaps a Taiwan equivalent. And I did indeed find some icing. Take a look:
Also notice that this is a 5 kg container! And how much does it cost? Just $1040 dollars! Of course that is in Taiwan dollars, but it comes out to over $30 bucks USD!! I picked up powdered sugar for about $2 USD, went home and made my own. But if I ever need icing for 30 cakes, I know where to get it!
PS... Is anyone else disturbed that it calls this "icing" paste?
Happy Birthday, Les!
