I'm impressed, if I do say so myself.
- black food colouring powder (which only really achieved a battle-ship grey with butter icing, dear Husband darkened the mix with a highly technical addition of exact amounts of blue and red food colouring. I like to call it pewter.)
- white dots made from Royal Icing and left to harden overnight, inspired by this magnificence
- beaks & feet cut from the orange layers of Liquorice Allsorts - thanks for the tip Z!
- wings from the black layers (again, Husband's brilliant input)
So a collaborative effort all round, but I'm still claiming them as my Number 29.
Oh and the kids (remember them?), they loved them too. Although
black pewter icing makes for some pretty ghoulish looking 2 yr olds!
And also, please can I not bake any cake tonight? Thanks. More festivities tomorrow ...
