My Aunt makes Candy Christmas trees in much the same way. Mmmm!
I think I need more practice with these! I had a little touble getting these out the bowl with out breaking:-( I think maybe next time I'll try it with a bit of oiled foil on the outside of an overturned ramekin. That way I can lift it off the bowl easily and then peel away the foil. Well that's my theory anyway we see how it plays out in real life:-)
