I am wanting to make MIL a birthday cake usimg chocolate cigarellos round the edge but they are really expensive, anyone know where you can get them cheaper or if there is an alternative. I was wondering about using matchmakers or mikados? Help!

I couldn't find the choc cigarellos anywhere apart from online and they are expensive, so I opted for choc fingers, photo on profile, only took about 1 hour plus all the cooling time etc.
