Hi everyone, I was just wondering if anyone knows where I can find the icing recipe that uses pavlova magic?? I think it was maybe a swiss meringue icing??? I'm pretty sure I came across it on here thru a link. Our house was broken into last week and they stole so much stuff including my computer with all my saved recipes and I was wanting to make the icing to use for my daughters first birthday next week. Hopefully one of you lovely ladies will know what I mean.
Thanks

i am pretty sure you can just substitute the copha in place of the shortening in the same amount can't you? Sorry i can't find any other recipe with the pavlova magic or specifically copha

Thanks Blue hue, Yeah I could kill the buggers if I find out who it is, they even took all the video footage we had taken of our little girl since she was born, luckily I had already put our sons video onto DVD. That looks like it might be the one as i remember the one I saw having something written about being a decorators icing. How does it taste?? I was going to use it on cupcakes for my daughters 1st birthday next week.
Thanks Again icon_smile.gif

They just don't care what they take or care about how prescious it is to the owners - luckily I had already put our sons video onto DVD.
Besides the break in its the unsettling feeling that *they* have been into your home -
About 4 months ago late one night i *heard* a noise (the husband was sleeping soundly) - so i go and investigate - and sure enough here is some *body* with his foot coming through our bathroom window - which was locked open (thank god)
I don't know who got the bigger fright - him or me - i raced for the phone - rang the police then flew upstairs and woke the husband -
By the time the husband was up and dressed the police were on our door step - icon_wink.gif
They were attending another BI 3 doors down the street - icon_mad.gificon_mad.giftapedshut.gif
Left me a bit rattled thats for sure. icon_cry.gif
But the mongral took off over the fence before the police could catch him icon_mad.gif

Sweet - but not sickly - IYKWIM

Oh yes - that is what i have used it for - and the best thing is - it is great for *all weathers*
Will look forward to seeing the photos -
Take care

I think this may be the one you are looking for. The basis is Toba's Decorator Buttercream and Nicole has made a slight adjustment to suit the Aussie palate and use copha.

Thanks BarbaraK, that is the exact one I was looking for, I thought it was on that site but I had a look today and couldn't find it.
Oh Bluehue, you poor thing that would have been terrifying for you, I guess the good thing is that we weren't home, it was hard enough when my 3 yr old saw the mess and then the next day when he realised that the computer and Playstation were gone, how on earth do you explain things like that to a 3 yr old, the little mongrels don't realise it's not just the stuff they take but all the other emotions and memories and not feeling safe in your own house that go along with it. They even helped themselves to food and drink and used the toilet, it's a pretty awful feeling knowing someone has been in your house.
But anyway Thanks again for your help ladies it is much appreciated thumbs_up.gif
