Today it is one month since I launched my blog, so happy 1 month anniversary to me! I've learnt a lot, but also have an awful lot more to learn about running a website and blogging in general. I'm pleased with my progress to date however, and with the food I've created for Small Child & friends so far.
Today I have another muffin tin meal to show you, this time based around dinosaurs. I found some dinosaur silicone cups at a 'Cake & Bake' show I went to in London last week, and was waiting for the opportunity to use them. I also saw this blog post from Keeley McGuire a couple of weeks ago and was 'dyeing' to try out the dyed dinosaur egg for myself (bad pun, I know!).
The meal was made up of the following; cheese crackers and poppy seed crackers decorated with a wooden dinosaur pick, some cucumber 'dinosaur teeth', some cheese trees decorated with another wooden dinosaur pick, some rolled up German sausage slices, a hard boiled egg dyed with food colouring in a dinosaur shaped silicone cup and some halved black grapes.
For pudding Small Child had some Frozen yoghurt 'dinosaur bones' (tutorial for frozen yoghurt shapes here) in a bowl decorated with some melon 'dinosaur spikes'.
This meal went down very well indeed; it even got a 'wow' from Small Child and I was really pleased with my first attempt at a dyed egg, especially since I was a bit rushed at the time. I have a feeling they'll be appearing on the menu again soon.
