Edible necklaces

At the agricultural show there were four-legged animals aplenty and lots of things to see. I love the big marquees with their smell of crushed grass and the peculiar light created by canvas - and, of course, I'm a sucker for a chunky necklace. So, what's not to like about the edible necklace competition? Five carat, oops, carrot, designs! (If the competition were for grownups then I would enter.)


They are wonderfully creative - egg and chips, anyone?



It's lovely to think of seven, eight  and nine year olds sitting at home and working on their designs. Who knows, it may be the start of a brilliant career.

 
I wonder how many 'jewels' were eaten during the threading process!

  1. Who needs diamonds when you can have a fried egg. It is so much more practical.

    1. Or jelly cubes with raspberry and vanilla ice-cream cones!

    1. I love the inventiveness and the thought of the children busy threading their 'jewels'.

  3. Hahahaha! This is a brilliant idea. I worry about the eggs. Ha. Breakfast, yum, lunch, yum, dinner. Followed by a night on the town. Crunch. Thanks for this fun post.

    1. I think I'd make a marshmallow necklace, vanilla and rose. It would look chunky but be light and warm next to the skin and only leave a light powdering of icing sugar over my shoulders!

  4. Yum! How cute! Food AND fashion. I'm thinking of making a necklace out of cocktails.

    1. Cocktail cherries, green and red? (They are certainly terrible to eat!)
