Could any of the UK based girls give me a recipe for sugarpaste to make little flowers, leaves, hearts etc to decorate my cupcakes?

I have been to the suppliers and bought tiny cutters that I needed but I haven't a clue as to the best way to make the icing? I've clicked on a couple of posts here but the products I've read about are in the US?

From what I've read I think I need to mix something in with the icing sugar along with egg white but I don't know what it is I need to buy? Sorry to be a nuisance asking questions all the time but hope you can help?

Many thanks, Beth xxx

i dont have any recipes handy, but the ingredients mentioned in the us ones are findable in the uk, you might have to look harder though or order online depending on where you live. sainsburys tends to be reliable.

personally, i just buy my fondant! more expensive, btu easier and more suitable for me.

also, check out your local library - most will have a couple of cake books which will include recipes in grams and ounces.
