What on earth do I do with 1kg of glace cherries?

Why on earth did I buy 1kg of glace cherries? All I needed was 150g for the Xmas cake!

Go 1970's retro with all your family's food (garnish everything with a cherry). Make cupcakes (lots of cupcakes).

So far we've had fairy cakes and fruitcake. I even took a load to ds's school bazaar in the hope of offloading them onto the children decorating biscuits - but not one child took them, they all prefered the silver balls!

Choccie brownies - yay! Never tried that, but certainly will now.

I love Advocaat

This has reminded me of a delightfully vicious cocktail we used to have at work parties, don't know what its proper name is, but we called it the Colin's Killer - named for my then boss. You soak cherries in brandy all day, then, when the party begins you pop them in a glass of champagne.

Mmmmm, ever so!

You might be better off using cocktail cherries ie maraschino (sp?)in cocktails, as glace cherries sink like a stone, and make the bottom of the drink taste sweet! (I speak from experience)

Doesn't help with your glace cherry mountain, though.

love the name-colins killer!

Drink a couple of Colins Killers and you sink like a stone! I speak from experience.

When we were little, glace cherries were my mum's magic cure for wasp stings etc. How old are your children?
