Okay, utterly boring thread #167, but I need a little helpsmile

I'm seeing a friend on Sunday and said I'd make some cupcakes to take round, and I've been thinking and thinking about it all night and as yet can't decide how to decorate them.

We both love hello kitty so theres an easy Plan B if I can't come up with something more interesting, but just wondered if anyone else had any ideas I could mould out of icing?

I have pretty much a free rein too, she has no allergies, isn't dieting, and I'm probably 7/10 at cake decorating talent. But she does despise Disney so sadly nothing from Disney Cake & Sweets would worksad

Make "noodles" by rolling out fudge and cutting it into strips!

Kitty- knead the fudge until it's yummy and mailable, roll it out on greaseproof and then cut into ribbons
"Meat" can be made of red/pink sugar ribbon cut into little pieces. "Peas" are green starburst (also kneaded into play dough consistency) ...also use the same idea for sweetcorn and carrot!

Stick everything on with buttercream smile
