Hi,

This is my first proper party for my eldest who will be turning 5.  

We are going to a venue and I anticipate tomorrow morning is going to be hectic.

So I was wondering if it would be OK to make the chocolate freckle bread shapes tonight and refrigerate for tomorrow (party starts at 11ish)?

Tomorrow I will be making the fruit skewers and finish cooking bread rolls for a sausage sizzle.

Cheers

What are chocolate freckle bread shapes?  I skim read you post and was thinking of fairy bread which I wouldn't make the night before (maybe butter the bread but not the 100s & 1000s) as the dye in the 100s & 1000s will spread and mix and end up a bit grey.

ok, you'll have to tell us how you make it. I love fairy bread(and eat it at every kid's party I go to) but this sounds like step UP from fairy bread so I MUST know how to make it!!!



Purely so I can make it at my daughter's parties of course once she's old enough to have more than 2 other kids there lol.

Is chocolate freckle bread, nutella and 100s & 1000s? Instead of fairy bread which is butter and 100s & 1000s?

If so, I love it! Can't believe I never thought of it!

It is exactly that, found it on Taste.com and much prefer it to butter! :-)

I was going to use a cookie cutter and put it into ginger bread man shapes.

Why not make chocolate ant bread?
Bread spread with nutella and then sprinkled with the chocolate sprinkles. Just like ants crawling on the dirt.

Bread would just be unnecessary carbs, PatG! You're doing yourself a favour by leaving that part out Tounge1.gif

I also love the idea of ants on dirt, and simple chocolate sprinkles instead of 100s & 1000s. My imagination really doesn't work, lol!

Ants on dirt another great idea...will check if I have any in the pantry.

Glad they were a success!

FWIW, I love a sandwich with butter and chocolate sprinkles on fresh white bread. Yum!

Now that I think about it, brioche would taste better lol.
