Grateful for my impulse decision to buy a cake icing kit … Simon says hot cross buns aren’t the same without the cross.  I have been messing around with baking paper folded and then the corner cut off.  This makes it so much easier!  Really do not know why I hadn’t splurged the $4 before to get one.
