Do you ever have a brilliant idea ... only to find that the execution is completely flawed?
Its Bargy's 4th birthday this week and as is customary, we needed to make a little something for his kindergarten classmates. My smashing idea was to colour ready-to-roll fondant (white) icing, before cutting out simple decorations for cupcakes.
I rifled through the playdough cutters and got to work on cutting out blue circles and two dozen red fours.
It wasn't until I'd embarked on this venture and passed the point of no return (read: coloured half a kilo of icing in an alarming shade of carmine), that I realised there was a problem.
Yup. The triangles. Can you guess how tricky removing the middles from two dozen fours is?
Four crying out loud: please always check your playdough cutter font before getting started.
