I’d much rather have that sketch on my wall than a Picasso
OM goodness where did you get your cutters from. They are ideal to make presents from my boysJust for a bit of variety and fun, here are my edible craft vanilla and chocolate piggies!
The cutters are some unsold Christmas cutters that I have found in a hardware shop; I have shaped them into guinea pigs with some pliers.
I also had to work out how to make a chocolate dough with exactly the same consistency as the vanilla one. Cocoa and drinking chocolate powder suck up moisture, so you have to compensate for that. It took a couple of tries to find the right amount of chocolate so it is not too strong for children but still tastes chocolatey!
You have to place the cutters judiciously and also roll out the dough patches carefully each time in order to create interesting patterns. The longer you do it, the more mottled the piggies become - but you still want to avoid the two doughs getting too badly mixed up into just one colour!
But it is always fun to allow the children to choose their own piggy when I sell the biscuits/cookies at guinea pig rescue fundraising events!

I want you to go to see Simon with these, and say you think they all have ringworm, until he has to take you seriously,
