Icing. It's all in the icing. I have always thought you could bake something that resembled a leathery old shoe, but add enough well positioned icing and it becomes a magical creation like no other.

Whip up enough butter or margarine and mix with powdered icing sugar, with a little milk of choice (I use soy) and flavourings as desired, and you will have a great soft yet shapeable mix which should pipe neat swirls on your cakes. I use disposable piping bags and a find a large, serated piping nozzle gives the best result.
