BANANA & STRAWBERRY SANTAS
Makes 6 banana Santas, Preparation time 20 minutes
• 2 large bananas
• 6 strawberries, rinsed and hulled
• 3 large white marshmallows
• 6 mini marshmallows
• 6 wooden skewers
• White writing icing
• Cake decor edible eyes (I get mine from Tesco)
• 6 red M&Ms
Slice each banana into 3 pieces to make the Santa faces. Insert a wooden skewer through the middle of the bananas so that there is a little poking out the top.
To make your Santa hats, slice each large white marshmallow in half. Push 1 marshmallow on top of each banana using the top end of the wooden skewer. Put 1 large strawberry on top followed by a mini marshmallow.
Using writing icing to stick into place, decorate the faces with edible eyes and add red M&Ms for the noses.
Be careful to remove the wooden skewers for little ones before tucking in
