Washi flags

These flags turn an ordinary mini hamburger into a sophisticated meal... or a cup cake fit for a king. I made these flags for a sailor party last week.  They are just too cute!

To start off you need toothpicks and some washi tape {in RSA you can order online from washitape} and a bit of time

You start by folding the tape around the toothpick with the point just at the edge of the tape.  Make sure that you stick it back-to-back - you don't want some sticky bits on the sides

Then you cut it straight off the roll

You can leave it like this... alternatively cut a triangle out or cut the flag in the form of a triangle

A good idea is to also stick these flag onto a skewer and use it as a cocktail stirrer :-)

biscuit fudge {zebra fudge}

I remember making these as a child when we had to take something for "cake sales".  They are quick, easy and yummy, but not recommended for those on a dieet ;-)

What you need:
1 packet (200g) Marie Biscuits
250g Butter {or margarine}
1 packet {500g} icing sugar, sifted
75ml {5 T} cocoa powder, sifted
1 egg whisked
1 teaspoon vanilla essence

Grease a baking sheet or square bowl with butter, margarine or non stick spray

Crush the biscuits with a rolling pin into small pieces, not crums :-) {best work by putting it in a carrybag and rolling a few times lightly with a rolling pin, but you can also use your hands to just crush them}

Melt the butter in a deep saucepan and add the sifted icing sugar and cocoa powder. Stir over medium heat until smooth.

Rapidly wisk in the egg, and the vanilla essence.

Remove saucepan from the heat and stir in the biscuits.

Spoon into prepared baking sheet and leave to cool for atleast 2 hours.

When firm, cut into squares and store in fridge.

Makes about 40 squares
