Sir Chocolate Books – Sir Chocolate and the Condensed Milk River Story and Cookbook!!
Sir Chocolate and the Condensed Milk River story and cookbook tells the tale of the drying up of the condensed milk river, leaving the fish and water creatures suffering in the shallow pools that remain, and the villagers without a ‘water’ source.
Sir Chocolate and Lady Sweet need to do something to save the village and the fish and other creatures. Who can help them? The trolls, of course. Another story that highlights the theme of acceptance of others regardless of their appearance.
How to make a cute cow out of fondant
Step 1 – Make the head by rolling an oval shape out of white fondant. Use your fingers to flatten the forehead and lengthen the snout. Use a small ball tool to make the eye sockets. Roll two eyes from small pieces of black fondant and glue them into the eye sockets using edible sugar glue.
Step 2 – Roll two small ovals of white fondant for the ears. Flatten them slightly by smoothing them with your fingers. Attach them on either side of the head using edible sugar glue.
Step 3 – Roll two triangular shapes from cream fondant. Use your fingers to shape them into a horn shape and attach them to the top of the head using edible sugar glue. Roll three narrow tubes of black fondant for the fringe and attach them to the forehead as per the picture.
Step 4 – Roll a large oval from white fondant for the body and set aside. Cut out a few thin black circles from rolled out fondant. Use cornflour to stop the fondant from sticking to the rolling pin. Gently pull the circles into slightly varied shapes and attach them to the body using edible sugar glue. Role a long, narrow but from white fondant and attach to the back of the body for the tail.
Step 6 – Roll four oblongs from white fondant for the legs. Make sure they are all the same length and width. Carefully insert a toothpick through the centre of each leg. If it loses its shape slightly, use your fingers to smooth it back into shape. Use a pair of wire cutters to snip the toothpick to approximately 1 centimetre remains sticking up. Roll four balls of black fondant and flatten them. Glue them to the bottom of the legs to form the hooves.
Step 7 – Using light pink fondant, roll an oval shape. Flatten it using your finger and squeeze the middle slightly to create a dent on the top and bottom of the snout. Use a small ball tool to make the nostrils. Attach to the front of the cow’s face using edible sugar glue.
Step 8 – Leave the constructed head, body, and legs to harden overnight. Attach the legs to the underside of the body using edible sugar glue. Attach the head to the front of the body and use a cup or other item to support the head until it dries. If you don’t do this, the heavy head will droop forward and tear a long rut in the top of the body.
