It has been too long since I last posted. With all the best intentions in the world to keep posting all over Christmas, I have let it slip with so much going on. But today as it was blustery to venture out too much I decided to have a go at making something different to share here.
I have been keen to make these melted snowmen cakes for ages, having seen the idea on Pinterest. So easy to make – apart from sourcing the noses ( I never thought I would like awake wondering what to use – first world problems, eh ? ) I made the cakes today using a simple cake mixture and icing, then adding a marshmallow for the head, coloured icing for the eyes and chocolate chips for the buttons. The nose – starburst ! Although I still call them Opal Fruits. I’m crazy like that.
Again I found some inspiration online for a half healthy, colourful festive snack – Grinch Pops. You could use banana instead but my daughters don’t like them. If nothing else, it’ll make the kids smile.
I can’t take credit for this wonderful cake, we won it recently, but I just wanted to show it off as it’s a little cutie.
I hope you’re having a great lead up to the big day. One week left …
Are you trying any new recipes or crafting ideas this year ? I would love to hear about them. Leave me a comment under this post or tweet me @lucylovesyablog.
