Make your own edible Christmas baubles
Designed to hang on your tree, these baubles are a pretty delicious treat
These baubles are specially designed to hang on your tree and they have a little hole at the top to thread through pretty ribbon. Remember to cut the hole (using the end of a drinking straw) before baking and ice around each hole to make it easy to thread through the ribbon.

Pipe around the outline and the hole in pink and allow to dry. Flood with white runny icing, remove air bubble with a cocktail stick and leave to set. Ice the candy stripes in alternate pink and lime green lines.
Spinning top bauble
Outline the bauble in lime green line icing. Flood with baby pink runny icing and allow to set. Pipe around the ribbon hole in fuschia, then add lines of lime green across the bauble. Add zigzag detail in welly green and use fuschia for little polka dots.
