Make your own Sugar Mice
450 Gram Granulated Sugar
225 ml water
2 tbsp of golden syrup
ribbon for tails
icing for eyes
Marble slap or very smooth surface
Put the sugar and water into a strong saucepan over a very gentle heat until ALL the sugar has melted, it will look cloudy white, only then bring it quickly to the boil and it will go clear, don't stir it and as soon as the temperature reaches 240 remove from the heat, if you let it go too much over you will get toffee brittle instead!!
Allow to cool in pan occasionally and very gently stirring as it cools, as it gets stiff tip out onto slab and with a palette knife move the outside cool sugar into the center eventually you can handle it like pastry.
Then either press into moulds( Lakeland sell mice moulds ) or you can model by hand. This recipe makes 8-12 squeaky mice for about 60 pence.......Don't forget to add the tails and keep an eye on the sugar I left my first lot for2 minutes to long and ended up with hard toffee! ha ha
We are having Mr Sea-Angels mom for Christmas FIRST time ever! so I have just started to get her room ready I want it to be a special magical Christmas (don't we all) and I liked the stillness and peace in there and the way the light is reflected from the snow outside, so I shall try to preserve that little peaceful place for her and not clutter it up toooo much ha ha...
Lots of hugs
