Every year Molly and I try to come up with something lovely for Louise for her birthday. Last year's photo montage was a high point (and a bloody expensive high point as well!) so this year we resorted to the old favourite of making cute stuff......
Marzipan letters, icing sugar, marshmallows and writing icing......
Step 1 - decorate box to hold them all in
Step 2 - lots of icing sugar, lots of cutting up marzipan
Step 3 - the work in progress
Step 4 - marshmallows and icing
Step 5 - et voila
I think that should have the desired effect on Christmas morning.
