Saturday sugar fix......

Today Andre, Max and I decided to do a bit of cooking. Not just plain baking either, we decided to dip our toes into the wonderful world of lollie making.

.....Spurred on by the recent purchase of this little gem of a cookbook.......
the main ingredient of the whole book being sugar in all its various guises, it's a sweet tooth's dream and a dentists nightmare! I couldn't resist though, it has a recipe for musk sticks, I mean who doesn't want to know how to make your own musk sticks!
Pure Genius!!

.........lollipops were decided on.......
A trip to the cake decorating shop for special supplies (glucose syrup, flavours and colours), and then we were away!

.....And here are the fruits of our labour, yummy and not too bad looking either!
Max has a big hunk of left over lollipop-that-hardened-before-we-could-get-a-stick-into-it wedged firmly in his cheek, hence the cheeky grin.

A special treat for the holidays kiddo, don't think we will be making these everyday!!

Hope you are having a great weekend too!
