Smile Hi

Hi everyone My name is Sue and I live in the UK I really enjoy baking and make celebration cakes for weddings, birthdays, anniversary's etc. I joined this site as I often make "American" cookies etc and have found some wonderful recipes but I find I need help with converting USA ingredients to UK for example you have confectioners sugar this we call Icing sugar. I hope you will all be able to help me with the convertions. I look forward to reading your posts and getting lots of advice recipes.

, Robin. Our family is big here, so I'm sure any questions you may have a person or 2, or 30, will be able to help. Ask away.
