I decided to play this afternoon and make the granddaughters some creme egg animals. They are not that good as I am a bit out of practise!
So if you can't work out what they are - they are an elephant and two Peppa Pigs (was going to make teddies, but gathered that the two youngest girls have been to Peppa Pig World today - so that was what I attempted to make!). Must admit I normally make pigs with the eggs laying down on 4 stumpy legs, but wanted to do Peppa's long arms - probably should have given her a skirt instead of legs.
The bodies are creme eggs and are sat on digestive biscuits (glued on with a bit of melted chocolate). The rest of the animals are sugarpaste (although you could use coloured marzipan/almond paste). For the eyes, etc. I used some tubes of chocolate flavoured icing from the supermarket.
Hope I have inspired you - and if you don't like creme eggs, just make a pear-shaped body from your sugarpaste/marzipan.
