The 4 year old made little red noses, while the 6 year old made mouths. I rolled out the green and cut triangles to make hats. I flopped the end of the triangle over as it would be off the edge of the cake otherwise. The 4 year old made bobbles for the bottom of the hats and the 6 year old used black for the eyes and before we knew it we had elves!
perfect for December lunch boxes. I love this sort of making. If I tried to make elf cakes then they would look a bit like the kids had made them but when I make them with the kids I am always impressed at what we make.
