Well a note about the carried away bits anyway!
I downloaded some really cool pirate cupcake printables from www.cottage-industrialist.com. So even though there was birthday cake I had to use them!
Then of course there was the Jelly! (That’s Jello for the over-the-pond peeps!)
Now I had seen blue jelly with fish in all over blogland. Problem is you can’t buy it here. (The UK is on an anti food colouring kick, which I generally approve of, but not in this instance!!) The Lovely laura posted me some however so we were back in business! The all-natural sweeties I put in it didn’t hold their shape too well, they kind of absorbed the jelly. They were the only ones I could get fish shaped. Maybe one needs e-number filled sweeties too? I added printed pirate ships to the outside of the cups to ‘sail’ on the ‘sea’. (Yes, okay Rob, they might technically be spanish galleons but no-one noticed shhhh!)
