Birthday Preparations

I am attending a 3 Year Old's Birthday party today. I have finished the project that I designed as a gift for her. I can't show you anymore at this stage because the pattern is under wraps for a few weeks - I have been sworn to secrecy !!! I wonder what it is that I was asked to make for her????? I wonder if you can guess?

All little people's parties need party food so I have decided to make some "Frugal" Marshmallow Cones to take with me. Have you made them before? Kids just love them. You will need :-

1 1/2 Cups White Sugar
1 1/2 Cups Water
6 Teaspoons Gelatine
Dash of Lemon Juice
Food Colouring
100's & 1000's
Ice Cream Cones

Makes Approximately 12

Place the Water, Sugar & Gelatine in a pot and bring to the boil. Boil for 5 minutes - Be careful it doesn't boil over.

Put it into a mixing dish and allow it to cool slightly.

Then beat until stiff - This takes a litle while. Put in a few drops of food colouring whilst beating. After it is stiff add a little dash of lemon juice.

Spoon into Ice Cream Cones and sprinkle with 100's and 1000's to decorate. Allow to set.
YUMMY !!!!!!!!!

I am off now to wrap my gift and clean up the kitchen but I just wanted to show you the remains of my beautiful vintage jug that I knocked off the shelf this morning. I still have it's little sister but I could have cried - Gosh I am so clumsy at times !!!

Aren't we all clumsy at times --- Or is it only me and you. And how our heart breaks. Marshmallow is just the best hit to pick you up again.

oooh, can't wait to see - I'm sure it's gorgeous, like everything you do!
I'm so sorry you broke your little vintage jug - I broke my favorite vintage flamingo and just cried like a baby. Especially when I think of all the years it survived who knows what, and then comes me and snaps its sweet little neck. I should live in a rubber room.
