20th December: Quick Christmas pud craft

I was inspired by Nikki McWilliams Design for this make. If you haven't discovered her before now, Nikki makes amazing cushions and accessories based on well-known and much-loved biscuits.

All I needed was some Tunnock's Teacakes, some icing made with icing sugar and water and some cake decorations.  I used glacé cherries to look like holly but the children also used silver balls and icing snowmen for theirs.

This craft is really effective for the little preparation required. I am making them for rather large children coming to our house this evening for Christmas drinks but they are perfect for little hands and mouths too.
