There are two things you won’t find very much of on this blog and that is crafts and cooking however with the lead up to Christmas it seems that even I am getting in the mood and I have had a few challenges thrown at me recently that involves food and creativity. The first of these challenges came from Abra-ca-Debora pancakes. Using a hamper of ingredients, Abra-ca-Debora pancakes and some imagination I had to recreate some famous masterpieces that are good enough to eat.
Abra-ca-Debora have already made a few which are displayed on their facebook page but I had to come up with something different and I turned to the classic artists for inspiration.
This Choconut creation used flaked almonds, peanut butter, nutella and some chocolate orange segments to create a delicious snack that didn’t last long.
Unfortunately I didn’t have anything suitable for the green stems but this pancake was made using the Abra-ca-Debora mini pancakes for the flowers, peanut butter vase with nutella outline and a sprinkling of orange zest to represent the petals on the sunflowers.
A chocolate christmas, this adaptation of the starry night used a cranberry mincemeat from Waitrose as the water and silver balls as the stars. When eating I did actually remove the silver balls as they are not my favourite thing but I thought they looked perfect.
I decided that although the classics were good the kids would definitely prefer this character to the pancakes above.
