I have discovered a new product which has made my life a little easier. My husband Chris HATES it when i sprinkle icing sugar as he finds a fine film of icing sugar covering everything in the kitchen.
To complete the look of the vintage Victoria sponge stack wedding cake i need to dust the top with lots of icing sugar. As this will be done on the day after i have stacked the cake in situ i had visions of covering the whole recpetion in icing sugar!
Then to my amazement i discovered this little gadget in Tesco. Whitworths have revamped their icing sugar shaker into a twistable version which works really well.
You take the lid off then turn upside down and twist the unit like a salt/pepper grinder It is very easy to control so you can slowly build up your decoration and you won't end up with half a cup of icing sugar on your cake by accident!
At £2.25 for 250g it is quite expensive and from what i can see it is not refillable but it is very handy for portable dusting situations and to avoid angry husbands!

Handy! I am annoyed by the same icing sugar aftermath.
