Ear worm: An earworm, sometimes known as a brainworm, is a catchy piece of music that continually repeats through a person's mind after it is no longer playing wikipedia
Isn't it the worst thing (ok not the worst thing, but come with me here) when a song or jingle gets stuck in your head.
I saw a bright yellow fluffy Easter chick in a half shell at the supermarket, that made me think of The Partridge Family opening credits, which led me to singing in my head 'C'mon get Happy' for the rest of the day. I didn't know all the lyrics so it was "Hello world dah duh dah GET HAPPY" :D
Having a 70's theme party? Or perhaps you mum still has her David Cassidy posters and you want to make her some partridges...
fondant coloured with blue, yellow and red
Trivia; the artwork on the partridge family bus was inspired by the work of Piet Mondrian a dutch artist 1872-1944
Start with brightly colouring your fondant, I've used Americolor gel pastes today: electric blue, yellow, pink, purple, red red for the fondant and bright white for the toothpicks I used for the legs. A black food marker was used for the eyes.
My partridges shaped from white fondant are "chubby" because I thought it was cuter.
I started with this shape and pulled the top over to one side. Insert half a white food colour painted toothpick for each leg on the small partridges.
toothpicks painted with white food colour... make sure people know there is toothpicks in these cakes
Roll out your pre coloured fondant, cut into tear drop shapes (for the large bird I used a round cutter and trimmed to shape). Dampen the back of your partridges and apply coloured fondant shapes. Draw eyes on with a black food marker. Insert the birds into prepared cakes. Roll a small piece of white fondant into a snake shape, cut small pieces off to make birds feet. Apply feet by slightly dampening ends and pressing on base of legs, use a spare tooth pick to secure the feet in place.
All done except for song 'C'mon get Happy'
and Happy Baking :)
