Mint stars and angels

As part of our crafty Christmas today we made mint stars and angels.  I wanted to do a bit of a practise run on making them as I will be making them again with my daughter as a Christmas gift for her nursery.  My daughter really loves making things and baking is something she often asks to do,   She was really excited to be making sweets.

We had a lot of fun making these and will be making them again soon.  My daughter loved sifting the icing sugar into the bowl as she kept saying, 'its snowing Mummy'.  She had a lot of fun and they taste fantastic.
