I played about with this cornflour based recipe on Saturday whilst Alice was at ballet which I found in the blogosphere this past week and got quite excited making these, hoping for something as white as snow and cheap and cheerful to add to my Christmas wrapping decorations.
To say I was a tad bit disappointed is an understatement and it took about 24 hours in my oven at 50 degrees C to get them to dry completely. I guess you could air dry them but I was far too impatient for that :o) Unfortunately they came out an off white colour and cracked in various places.
Thanks Alice, that's a little bit more festive and a lot better.
We will use some tartan ribbon to thread through the straw made holes and hope they don't crack before Christmas day.
To cheer ourselves up we ended making these stain glass ginger biscuits...from this recipe.
I hope you have had a fun filled weekend, its been beautifully sunny but freezing here and we have been keeping cosy indoors after having had long coastal and countryside walks.
Thanks for stopping by,
See you all very soon with some of my finished makes
