I work in a school, and sometimes at the end of the school year the children give me some really lovely thank you gifts. One of the more unusual gifts a few years ago was the book pictured below. I have often looked at the lovely little cakes on sticks, but only recently managed to find the lollysticks that I needed to make them. Once again Lakeland came up trumps.
So we decided to have a go at one of the easier recipes. We did get a bit confused to start, as the book is American, and refers to frosting. But once we had worked out that was what we call icing there was no stopping us. Our cakes are not quite as professional as the ones on the book cover. We went for a slightly more random decoration style. But they were easy to make, and very tasty. Next time we may try some of the little animals.
They make a really lovely display, and I think would go down very well at any sort of party. Also very easy to eat without making a mess.
