The children soon set about decorating the Madeleines and weren't shy about using the icing. There was a lot of icing. It was everywhere, all over their hands, on their shirts, on the kittens who were sitting watching the proceedings and erm in my mouth too.
After we'd decorated and covered ourselves in icing and sprinkles, the children were allowed to eat their creations. Big Boy had recently taken part in a Doughnut challenge, where he wasn't allowed to lick his lips, so he decided that we should have a challenge when eating our creations. It was decided that what we should do, was whilst we were eating them we weren't allowed to make any noises that made it sound like we were enjoying them...
The children were really trying hard with their cakes, and trying to enjoy them without making any noises! I think we might have to try this again, when the children eat some of their favourite foods, although I doubt that I'd be able to join in as I'm forever making appreciative noises when I'm eating.
We had so much fun together, we were able to chat and muck around together and the children were being creative and apart from my camera there was no technology involved, which does make a change.
I think that what we're going to have to do is do this again, because for a relatively cheap friday night treat, this was certainly one of my favourites.
We were sent everything in the 2nd picture to have fun with.
