    haha, kx. don't think it would get there quick enough. Recipe says it only lasts a week.

    Thanks arcanegirl ^_^ I'll be hunting for decs all year now, lol.


    Icing wasn't thick enough though and it started to run. Phoned up my mum and she said to put it in the fridge. Hope its set better now ^_^

    lol, iwantone. I think royal mail would kill it in the post. or eat it.

    No one's had any yet. We were stuffed after dinner and now i'm at my parents. Will try some on wednesday. Maybe the icing will have set by then :roll:
