Well we gave it a go today and this was our finished result. Am so pleased that these Candy Cane Hearts were a success.
So easy to do to ! Simply heat oven, we had ours at Gas Mark 6 /7, placed the candy canes into a heart shape and popped in oven middle shelf for approx 90 seconds. Quickly moulded the canes and left to cool. Once cooled completely, melted white chocolate and poured into heart shape then added christmas sprinkles. I cheated slightly as popped them into freezer for 10 minutes to harden.
Such a fun activity to do with kids – give it a go !
A slightly different post to the crafting or baking posts that I normally do …
My gorgeous godson is now at the age where he can really get stuck in with crafts and enjoy them.
So yesterday we had great fun making Halloween bats, pumpkins and marshmallows pops.
All so easy to do and did not cost a fortune but main thing was we had FUN and created happy memories.
The marshmallow pops was very simple ( and much easier than the dreaded cake pops ), I found this via a blog so I will not take credit for this activity, and so easy to do. :- simply cut small hole in marshmallow, insert stick, put in freezer for 5 minutes to help set, melt chocolate then dip in the marshmallow and add sprinkles.
The bat and pumpkin craft was simply draw outline and let my godson loose with glue ( pritt stick ) and tissue paper. The finished result is now proudly on mum & dads fridge.
Happy Halloween Everyone
So it is my Birthday …. and how did i spend it ?
Well i was asked to make 50 yes 50 Cake Pops – the bane of my life for a christening. I swear this is the last time i make these things. Yes they may look cute and all that but they are so time consuming to make and can make me mad when they fall off the stick when dipping into candy melts. NO MORE !!
25 were Vanilla and 25 Red Velvet
But to make up for this hard work look at the goodies i got for my birthday !
Now i know some may say or think that the Die Cutter is small but honestly for a newbie like me this is perfect, but i have decided to splash out maybe next year if all goes well on a slightly bigger die cutter.
Well i kept seeing this on twitter and google and thought ” WOW how fab does that look ?”
So i decide to have a go and ….Voila ! My first attempt and i must say i am very impressed with it.
So very easy to make. All i needed was Betty Crocker chococlate cake mix ( cheating i know as usually i make all things from scratch ), Tub of Betty Crocker chocolate buttercream, 2 packets of milk & white chocolate fingers and 2 packets ( boxes ) of maltesers – job done !
Scrummy cake 🙂
