Icing Christmas Cake

Can anyone tell me how to ice my cake without the icing breaking up I have even been to cake decorating classes but the blimmin stuff still breaks, I suppose I could use the roll out icing from the supermarket.

Buy Bakels brand from supermarket. 1 pkt should cover a 20cm cake. Dont skimp. Use 2 pkts if your cake is larger. Use cooking spray on your hands and the bench. Roll 2-3 times, then pickup and turn around the icing. Dont flip it over. If it sticks a bit, pick it up and spray the bench again. Drape it over the rolling pin to place it on the cake. Use warm hands to rub out the bumps.

Thought I should add that you need to keep rolling until its the right size. Just a couple of rolls, then move the icing and roll again. Let us know how you get on.

Definately store bought - and knead until it is pliable before rolling.
