Is paypal fee reasonable?

Yes for me it is reasonable, as you say it is one of the most convenient ways to pay and to receive money. In my opinion fees that PayPal collected is very rational. What’s not rational is when you have to move your money from PayPal to your bank account. It took 2-5 working days plus other bank still deducted fees with this transaction. Justice please!!!

Can Handle Sleepless Nights 
One of the pros of being a young parent is that you will still have some of that youthful energy to help get you through the next day. 

Less Risk of Complications
It’s not easy being an older mother. As a young mother, you are less likely to encounter the same difficulties

Active Grandparents 
Having kids when you’re young means your kids may get to love the experience of having active grandparents. It also means your parents will be able to enjoy the luxury of really getting to know their grandkids, because they’ll still be young and healthy enough to enjoy them.

And speaking of being an active grandma, you’ll have more chance of meeting those exciting new additions to the family. Having kids 10 years earlier than your friends could give you an extra 10 years to meet any great grandkids and great grandkids that might be welcomed into your family.


Cons of having a baby in a young age

Financial
Since you are young you may not be as financially secure as the older mother. You may wish you’d had time to travel, do shopping, etc. You may feel all of these things since you have no savings.

Guilt
There are times that you may feel guilt since you don’t focus on your career before your priorities shifted.

What is best icing for cakes and cupcakes?

Buttercream Frosting is one of the best icing for cakes and cupcakes. Whether you are whipping up cupcakes, cake, or cookies, buttercream frosting is the perfect way to top just about anything.


Different types of Icing?

Here are the most well-liked kinds of icing:

Butter Cream

This is softer and more spreadable than most icing and is the preferred choice for taste and flexibility. It can be used as a filling inside cakes and also as a coating for decoration. It is made by creaming together sugar and butter or other fats like lard or margarine. The quality of the fat used will affect the taste, consistency and appearance of the cream frosting, as also the temperature at which the butter is whipped. Add a burst of flavor with vanilla extract. The cream melts easily in hot weather and so must be kept chilled to keep its form.

Royal Icing

Usually used to cover and decorate dense fruit cakes, Royal icing is a pure white and fluid paste that solidifies into a hard outer shell on drying. Made by beating together egg whites, icing sugar, and lime juice, it looks smooth, hard and matte when dry. Some may use meringue powder instead of the egg whites because of the risk of salmonella when using raw egg whites. Glycerine is often added to prevent the icing from setting too hard. It is easily dyeable using edible food colourings.

Meringue

This very light & frothy icing is made by beating together egg whites, granulated sugar and cream of tartar (to avoid egg whites odor). The technique of introducing air to the mixture gives it a foamy consistency. The added sugar stiffens the foam. It can be plain or flavoured and with nuts added to it. There are 3 popular varieties of meringue – French, Italian and Swiss. The difference lies in the methods of beating the eggs. Uncooked meringue can be used as pastry toppings, or it can be baked until crisp and eaten like cookies.

Fondant

Fondant is a popular heavy frosting that can be easily sculpted and is used mainly for celebration cakes. Basic fondant ingredients include water, gelatine, glycerine, water, sugar (icing or castor sugar) and shortening. Some use marshmallows in place of gelatine and glycerine. The ideal texture is a fondant that can be stretched without tearing. It can be worked into different shapes using carving and decorating tools.


What is the best flour to use in alternative to chicken breading?

When there’s no ready breading in the kitchen I generally use all-purpose flour, with a bit of corn starch then sift it, add some seasonings directly to the flour like salt, pepper, onion powder and garlic powder. This can make you a delicious and crispy fried chicken or any other meat.
