So here you go in Se7en + 1 steps: We began with a cake… a plain old “Quickest Cake in the World” kind of cake… and don’t worry if little folk have been nibbling it, because you are going to have turn it into cake crumbs anyway… A couple of months ago we bought a food processor and I am still learning the ropes… but it was a lifesaver… A push of the button and we had cake crumbs!!! … Then you combine your crumbs and icing together to form a thick mixture… We kept some icing back and added more than enough icing sugar… this is great workable modelling clay, you can roll it you can shape it – anything… add a dash of colour using food colouring and a toothpick and you are away!!!
