Cadbury Dairy Milk Pebbles tester review thread NOW CLOSED

(240 Posts)
AngelieMumsnet (MNHQ) Fri 27-Sep-13 15:50:31

This thread is for the 250 Mumsnetters who have been trying the new Cadbury Dairy Milk Pebbles and refining their sweet treat decorating skills.

Here's what the team at Cadbury says about the product: "Cadbury Dairy Milk Pebbles are a lovely new addition to the Cadbury sharing range and we’re really excited to launch another great bitesize bag. They are a fun, tasty, colourful new treat designed for everyone to share and enjoy."

Please upload photos of your unusual and imaginative creations to this thread. The most creative design (as judged by Cadbury) will win a £250 John Lewis voucher!

Thanks and good luck,
MNHQ

Two birds killed with one stone. My 11 yr old DTDs have made this cake for our church lunch tomorrow all on their own. We are resisting eating the rest because DS has plans for a jelly extravaganza. Just waiting for the jelly to set before decoration can begin.

Dds (7&8) were delighted to take part in this! We have made a spooky Halloween cake using the Cadbury's pebbles as the stones of the turrets - glued on with melted Dairy Milk.

It is far too long to wait until Halloween to wait to eat this so we will be forced to eat in tonight whilst watching Strictly!! Sadly there are three turrets and four of us....I feel a family row discussion coming on!!

Ps: For future reference it is never a good idea to turn your back on two little girls with a tube of strawberry sauce.....

We loved doing this - thanks! grin

Oh my god! I was planning to just let the DD's stick them on something but these are stunning!

Meet "Pebbles the turtle". We made "Pebbles the turtle" using a basic vanilla sponge recipe (4oz each of sugar, self-raising flour, margarine, and 2 eggs plus a dash of vanilla extract).

Then pop it in a greased bowl in the microwave for 4 minutes!

A fantastically quick microwave cake that the kids can bake so easily.

Then the fun bit - buttercream (butter and icing sugar mixed together) and cover in Cadbury Pebbles which look perfect as the turtle shell. The kids loved getting involved - especially for this stage. The head, legs and tail are just shaped from ready-to-roll icing which was mixed with cocoa powder to make it a brown colour.

The end result - an impressive looking cake (we surprised ourselves by how well it turned out) which is quick, easy and fun to make and decorate with the kids!

The snorris household made a pinata cake smile. (The Pebbles are put in after baking). My 3 daughters aged 10,10 and 4 decorated the top with the flower patterns.

Not the greatest cake in the world, but my 3 year old wanted to decorate her own birthday cake all by herself and loved the Pebbles so much that they became a integral part of the decoration.

We have had a very productive morning. DS 11 decided we should do a beach theme to go with the product name.
We made a jam sponge and then coloured some icing. DD 8 rolled out the icing to make the sea , sand and a sandcastle.
DS then put 3 little pirate figures on , made a flag for the sandcastle and dd 5 decorated our beach with lots of pebbles.
Thanks for letting us do this we have had a great morning. We now have desert for after lunch.

This is our effort! 3 birds killed with one stone- tester, welcome home cake and experiment with mini hemisphere cake pan. The red bit is meant to be Earths molten core! Kids had a great time sticking pebbles on. I should have known that we would be out-created though-Your cakes are amazing!

We made Pirate Treasure! Melted dark chocolate, mixed with popcorn, raisins, crushed biscuit, peanuts and of course Cadbury's Pebbles. Popped them in the freezer for 10 minutes and arranged them in a treasure chest !(I may have helped slightly at this point wink )

snowplop Sun 29-Sep-13 16:55:08

Here are our 'Pebble-pillars' grin

Much fun had by all involved - thanks!

FrillyMilly Sun 29-Sep-13 17:40:09

Some of these are amazing! I let DD decorate a ganache covered cake. Apparently it's a butterfly.

Lilyloo Sun 29-Sep-13 17:41:12

Loving this thread , they are all great smile

lborolass Sun 29-Sep-13 21:12:45

These are all great, I let my 5 year old do their own thing so nowhere near as creative as the rest

Katz Sun 29-Sep-13 21:14:10

Ours haven't arrived yet

glitchesnbugs Sun 29-Sep-13 21:21:31

This is my DS's Minecraft-decorated cake (he's 8), apparently it is a suit of diamond armour, a never-portal and an iron sword!?

fuzzpig Sun 29-Sep-13 21:25:11

I can't see photos on the mobile site, will check on laptop later. Ours haven't arrived yet.

ladygoingGaga Sun 29-Sep-13 21:42:10

DS and friends age 2, 5,7 and 9 had fun decorating today, and the whole bag seemed to disappear!

Very impressed with some of your efforts smile ours look amateur compared!

iamaredsmartie Sun 29-Sep-13 21:45:48

We made a 'cheesecake' covered in mice. OK, so it was a lemon cake, but the mice had ears, tails and even eyes.

Then my daughters made some footprints on biscuits.
