GIVEAWAY - Stick on edible eyes



I bet you didn't know that you needed edible eyes that you can decorate your food with in your life.  Well, you do.  They're entirely free from any point whatsoever, but very cheering, and have been making my son laugh hysterically at plums and things all week.  We were sent ours by www.iwantoneofthose.com (or IWOOT as they now like to be called), and their arrival created all sorts of OMGZOPENTHEMNOWBRILLIANTBRILLIANTBRILLIANT hopping up and down in the smallest member of our household.  You'd think that we never gave him anything, but really it's just because he has a bizarre love of sticking eyes on things that shouldn't have eyes.  You may remember this epic post from a couple of years ago.  Yeah.  Just imagine how much better that would have been if we'd had some ready made eyes instead of crappy ones that I'd made myself out of stickers and a biro.

We started small by putting them on the contents of the fruit bowl, with the pleasing result of Rory begging for apples and pears with faces all the time, which doubled his fruit intake within days.  Then we progressed to scones:


What's not to love about scones with eyes, right?  Plus they're made of what tastes like a very thin but strong sort of sugar paste, so you can eat them.

Get those pastry cutters out and use them as crowns.  Give your scones toothpick spears.  You have a baked goods battle just waiting to happen.  Now, who wants some for Christmas?  YOU DO.

Buy them for £6.99 for a pack of 10 pairs of eyes from IWOOT or I have one pack to give away, so fill in the Rafflecopter below and I'll draw a winner at random in a week's time.
