Edible Olympic torch

After seeing the official Olympic torch we decided to eat the torch, well not the real one. Admittedly our efforts we not as impressive as this one made by a hotel in York, but we still had fun creating our own edible torch.


You will need


Cover the breadstick in melted white chocolate

And sprinkle

Voila torches for tea (or any other time you fancy - *just in-case you were wondering we ate nutritious sensible food first and had the torch as a pudding*)

And here is a picture of The Frog getting to grips with the real thing. Not sure that it was designed for sensory play but it does feel great to touch!

  2. Did I miss something, how has the frog got to touch the real one? How cool is that! I like your bread stick torch. You could do a savoury one with melted cheese and bacon bitz

  3. @JDanielsMum - tehy were yummy- think I was more impressed with the real olympic torch than the Frog tho

    @The Monko one of our family were chosen to be a runner in the relay (we were v proud!) the bacon bitz are a fab idea
