I teach 6-11 year olds cookery and try and keep it interesting. A few weeks ago one of my pupils approached me with a cookbook she had been given for her birthday and pointed out the Peppermint Cream recipe and how she would like to make them. As I haven't made them since my school days I decided to play around with recipes and dyes to get different effects. I admit I'm a bit of a novice when it comes to colouring things, but I really enjoyed it. I essentially mixed together 400g icing sugar with around 2tbsp water until I got the right consistancy then added some of my gel dyes.

After I took this photo I mixed all the different icings together and got quite a psychadelic effect that looked scarily like playdoh!

Blue hearts and green stars.  Makes me think of oversized Lucky Charms cereal.  They are really cute, though.  Nice job.
