hello. Wasn't sure whether to post here or in food. Dd (10) needs to make a small, edible rowing boat. it has to have oars and a figure inside, we are going to use a jelly baby for the figure. Any tips for making the actual boat, given that we don't have any special moulds. I am hoping we can get creative and fashion some sort of mould out of foil or??
hello, thanks for asking, and for your advice. Well we used a cake pop mould to make a little boat (half of the mould, like a mini easter egg) initial attempt the chocolate was too thin but second attempt lovely. stuck a red jelly baby in using more melted chocolate as the glue. Then I spotted some candy sticks in our local shop (formerly known as sweet cigarettes when I was little!) snapped one in half and glued them in with chocolate as oars. He is wrapped in bubble wrap in a mini tupperware now, in the fridge. I have asked dd to keep the "recipe" under wraps as one or two of her friends may try to pinch our ideas.
