Jelly Baby Jesus Cakes

Another one of our advent traditions in The Mad House is to make Jelly Baby Jesus Cakes.  Now look away now if this is going to offend you!

  • Shredded wheat
  • Golden Syrup
  • Milk Chocolate
  • Jelly Babys
  • Royal Icing
  • Cake Cases
  1. Break up the chocolate in a bowl and melt. I do this on the stove over a pan, but you can microwave it
  2. Scrunch up some shredded wheat.  Cornflakes or rice crispies would be fine too
  3. Add a tablespoon of golden syrup to the melted chocolate (it keeps it melted longer, which is easier for the children) and then add the shredded wheat.
  4. Have a good lick at your spatula when you have finished mixing!
  5. Scoop out and place in to the cake cases, this is the straw.
  6. Take your Jelly Baby Jesus,  and place him very gently on to his bed of straw as you do not want to wake him.
  7. Then cover him in a royal icing blanket.  
  8. I buy premade royal icing for the Christmas cakes, so just save it.  
  9. Then enjoy scoffing your Jelly Baby Jesus Cakes!!
Sorry if this offends anyone, but we love it.

Dumping the tumble dryer and Ecoforce giveaway

We have a tumble dryer, but it broke before christmas and we  couldn't afford to get it repaired, so I have been managing with an old fashioned wooden clothes rail and hanging bedding over the doors to dry, This last would of weeks however, I have been hanging the washing outside and it has been drying much quicker and with less creases, so I am going to take the plunge and instead of getting the dryer replaced I am going to give it away. Ecoforce heard me on twitter bemoaning the fact that I was chasing laundry round the garden as my pegs were not working and very kindly sent me some of their Ecoforce pegs to try and they have been fab. So in conjunction with Ecoforce I have a year's supply of green cleaning and washing up wonder products worth £50 comprising the following: EcoForce Peg Basket x 1 EcoForce Clothes Line x1 EcoForce Pegs x 2 packs Several of each of: EcoForce sponges, scourers, cloths, duster and bag grips Dishmatic Dishmatic Refills x
