i have the best new cook book ever!!!! ok, the actual 'cook' bit of it is a bit underwhelming, but everything is so pretty! and awesome!
.....my first rather sleepy post-work attempt at biscuits without any of the right tools didn't all go quite totally to plan - but i now know that you can melt sweets (in this case mints) in the oven to make 'glass'! oh the possibilities!
anyways, here are my rather rugged chocolate biscuit monocles with peppermint glass and strawberry laces rope:
next time i shall make sure to put enough smashed mints in each one - the 'glass' in some of them was a bit holey.
