Valentines treats

At Eloise's school on Friday we are having a Valentines Goodies sale.  I say we, as I am on the PTA and we thought it would be a lovely treat for the children, and a great way to raise a little bit of cash.

Well that is not the whole story, but I am just getting used to PTA politics and I don't want to bore you with the details - lets just say I seem to have caused an upset with my last set of minutes!

So this is what I have been making these little treats for - they have been made out of 6 inch squares of paper - so they are only diddy - and they have Love Hearts sweeties in them.  So far I am up to 30 and I am going to keep going till I run out of the paper squares, or until I get fed up - whichever may be sooner!

I have kept them really plain, so they are quick to make.  Not sure how well they will go down with the kiddies, but I just wanted to do something that was a little different than cakes.

Saying that, the oven has just beeped - which means that the 2 dozen fairy cakes Eloise and I just made are ready. Don't think I will be able to resist, so time for a cuppa :-)

I have a feeling that I may have to bake some more tomorrow!
