It’s no secret that I love to cook but I’m the sort of cook that makes a nice pie, you know? It usually tastes pretty darned good but it doesn’t always look, well, pretty. My cakes tend to be of the big slab of delicious stodge variety. Give me a piping bag and it ends up looking like a very bad episode of The Generation Game. I’d love to be able to make fancy cupcakes with swirly icing and a cherry on top but I think I am just lacking in that particular life skill. My talents just lie elsewhere. Clearly.
I was sent some fab recipe ideas to try with the children from Nestle using their wholegrain cereals and I couldn’t resist giving them a try. I mean, how hard could it be? So we set about making some Cheerios Fluffy Sheep. And after an afternoon of fun in the kitchen and a wooden spoon that will never quite be the same again, here we have it. Our sheep! What do you think?
He might not be perfect *ahem* but he did taste good and it was a nice way to pass a rainy afternoon with the children.
To see what he could have looked like and more recipes for you to try, pop over to Nestle Whole Grain. There are lots of food art ideas which are a perfect way to include more whole grain in your diet. And of course more fun in your kitchen 😉*Disclosure: For the purpose of this post, I was very kindly sent some recipe cards and cereals
