In a slight change from the advertised episode, we are talking about sugarpaste this month. What ones do you use? What do you want to try? How would better product descriptions help us shop smarter?

Join Erica and Sam as they discuss their time making cookies - Sam will tell you about her experiment freezing cookies with edible prints on. Meanwhile Erica will give you a good idea of how to store your cookies. Find out who are our Ones to Watch in the world of sugarcraft and catch up on the latest trends and products to hit the caking world this month. Tune in while you cake or on your daily commute, wherever you are we are happy for you to join us and listen to what we've been up to!
