There is nothing more terrifying then getting a call from a family friend saying she wants to have a catch up and it is right on lunch time. Opening up the pantry there is slim pickings but I spotted some plan biscuits and I knew I had to use the icing to try out - so I thought could kill two birds with one stone. While my eldest had a quick clean up my youngest got to work kneading the packet until it was soft. She was so proud of herself when she declared it was soft enough, so I quickly took over and to my amazement she was right.

I pulled out a plate, threw the biscuits on and cut the corner of the packet and let Miss Six ice them. The first thing I noticed was the beautiful blue colour - it really is bright and magical. My eldest and I stood watching in awe as she continued to ice the biscuits. As it was quite thick I grabbed a knife to spread it over the surface, but quickly noted this was not required and it looked way better with some volume added to it. We all tried one and all three of us agreed they were yummy and then stuck them in the fridge and continued to have a very fast clean.

When our guests arrived the kids took off and played until I heard the phase I hate 'mum we're hungry' so I proudly went to the fridge and pulled out the plate of our blue biscuits. Everyone said 'wow' and then it was followed by 'bubblegum' or 'blueberries' and then as fast as they appeared they disappeared. Then I was drilled on the product by my 'bestie'. I showed her the 'pink' flavour that we have still got to use and she sat there kneading the product and commented about how relaxing the whole process was. Now, let me point out she is a goddess in the kitchen and can whip up something in a second and she is the sort of person who can ice a cake and make it look so professional so for her to say that she is going to go out and buy it is saying something!

It was unanimous that the icing flavour was yummy. It is my favourite to date. The colour, the taste, the ease, the quickness of the whole thing has me sold. I love a product that manages to make me look good and is so simple to use. This blue little packet of magic has found a place in my heart.

I absolutely love Dr. Oetker baking products and they have become my go to brand for all of my baking needs, infact I have a rather good collection of various bits and pieces from the range beginning to form up in my kitchen pantry from sprinkles, to fondant and tubes of decorating chocolate and sparkly coloured gel icing, and I can say after testing out the pink easy icing that more easy icing is going to be the next thing that I add to my collection and make sure that I always have on hand for times of need.

Making icing is not my strong point, there is always a problem arising for me in this process, the icing is either not the right colour, to thin or to thick, and no matter how many different types of icing recipes I try out it's hard to find one that works for em and that is fail proof. With Dr. Oetker Easy Icing all of the hard work is done as this product is ready to use.

TO try out this product Miss 4 and I decided to whip up a batch of cupcakes together which when completely cool we decorated with this blue icing. The icing was such a beautiful blue colour, it was vibrant and bright and I loved the fact that it wasn't to dark. Once applied to the cupcakes the finish of the appeared lovely and smooth with a really nice shine to it. Miss 4 immediately said that the icing reminded her of water so we based our cupcake decorating around this, topping our cupcakes with some fish and shark shaped lollies and adding some mini white marshmallows as bubbles which looked pretty cute. The icing tasted really nice and I found it not to be to overly sweet, it had a very vanilla like taste to it, and I loved how it didn't taste extremely artificial.

The product was simple to use, Miss 4 could use and prepare it by herself and the instructions for use could not have been simpler. After kneading the contents for several minutes to soften and ensure the product was mixed through you simply cut a small corner off one of the sides of the packet and your good to go. The icing flows effortlessly and went on perfectly onto the cupcakes, as they were of a normal cupcake size this pack covered 6 cupcakes, but if you were doing mini cupcakes it should cover 12. The icing is quick to set taking approximately 15 minutes in the fridge.

Another amazing product which I feel lucky to have tried, I can't wait to buy more of the easy icing and look forward to testing out the chocolate variety one day in the future.

Miss Five loves blue so she immediately put her hand up to test this variety. I found a simple cupcake recipe that she could manage with minimal help and we were away! Having made her cupcakes and cooled them ready for decorating, she took out the packet of icing and got some sprinkles to add on top. (I did not think we needed sprinkles, but I was assured that they would go beautifully with the blue icing, so who was I to argue?)

She started by kneading the contents, ensuring they were soft enough to spread once the packet was opened. The bottom of the packet (where there is a fold) was slightly harder to work so she asked me to help and we soon had it all ready. I then cut one corner off so she could squeeze the contents out. She found this process quite straightforward, letting a dollop fall onto each cupcake so she could then smooth it with the back of a spoon. In effect there was very little spreading needed as the icing was exactly the right consistency for coating.

It was too much to expect her to finish the lot without at least one taste, however, so the spreading spoon ended up in her mouth after the first cake. (I can confirm that she used a fresh spoon for the rest!) She thought it tasted sweet but could not identify a specific flavour. She made me taste it too, and the only flavours I could pick up were lemon and vanilla bean, and even then it was so subtle that I could not be sure. My daughter tried a taste too and she thought she could identify blueberries, but maybe she was influenced by the colour.

Whatever the flavour, it looked wonderful when Miss Five had finished her icing. She put sprinkles on a few before the icing had set, but I asked her to leave some of them plain as some of the family might not want the extras - and this proved to be true. The icing set into a shiny surface which adhered well to the cake; there was no splitting and no streaks or ridges as it dried out - in fact the effect was highly professional

Although the blue was quite extreme and might not be quite the thing for a formal party, it would be ideal for a children's party - especially a theme party where there were to be a few dominant colours. Miss Five thought it would be a good idea to have a "learning to read" party with her friends and ice some cakes in blue, red, green and yellow as they are the colours often used in brightly coloured readers. At her age, everyone is learning to read, so that would be an appropriate way to go. In the meantime, we passed them round the family and the comments were unanimous - from "cool!" (the younger ones) to "unusual colour but it tastes fine!" from the oldies!
