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


Step 1

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. 

Step 2

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.

Step 3

Using writing icing to stick into place, decorate the faces with edible eyes and add red M&Ms for the noses.

Step 4

Be careful to remove the wooden skewers for little ones before tucking in
