Last night I had a first attempt at making the sugar-paste rosebuds for the top of the cupcakes for Niknak's wedding.
They're quite hard to create, but after 20 attempts, I at last had something that looked like a rose rather than a messy blob of sugar paste.
Having never made sugar-paste rosebuds before, I had a little Google to see what came up. And do you know? There are loads of videos on YouTube showing you how to make them.
This is great, but it left me hankering after subtitles, so I could read along as well as watch.
Anyone know of any subtitled sugar craft videos? (Now, that's a question I never thought I'd ask!!!!)
Other things I wish were subtitled that aren't, are exercise DVDs. I quite like doing these and they're cheaper than a gym membership, but they never ever have subtitles.
This means that I never really know what's going on.
Sure, I can follow the actions, but I miss the instructor tips and when doing anything that's meant to involve looking at the floor, I can't as I need to watch what happens next.
I think the muscle I work hardest during these DVDs is the one in my neck, as I'm always craning it to see what's going on, and when I don’t know what’s going on I look like a newborn foal who’s been at the Baileys – arms and legs flailing everywhere.
I know if there were subtitles, I'd still have to crane my neck to read them. But after a few times, I'd probably remember that the instructor said, breathe here, and don't forget to clench those butt cheeks... or what ever it is they say.
I wanna know when to clench my butt cheeks...
I want subtitles on my exercise DVDs.
