I love fragrant things. I’ve kind of given up wearing perfume since I was pregnant, and it’s now been 2 years. When I am cooking it all turns into one big olfactory experience but there is always something missing. Mince pies smell great but where is that true fragrance, the smell of Christmas?! It’s right here my friends in the form of ‘icing sugar’.
Just lightly dust your mince pies, and any other Christmas treats with this Paleo faux icing sugar and be blasted into another sensory dimension! It tastes so delicous, and when you bring that yummy mince pie to your mouth you inhale the wonderful scent of oranges, vanilla and spice.
It takes 2 seconds to whizz up so why not give it a try?!
