Heart Canape Sticks
Heart canape sticks are a cheap and easy way to jazz up any plate of nibbles.
It only takes about 15 minutes to make 40-50 sticks. These were made to pimp up the food for Abbi’s afternoon tea party last month. Because the tea party was held at home, we wanted to amp up the details, so that it felt ‘special’. Last week I shared the cute butter hearts we made (don’t worry, not everything is heart shaped). I’ll share details of the other things as soon as possible.
- Red polymer clay (Fimo)
- Cocktail sticks, ideally with sharp points on both ends.
For around 40-50 sticks, you will need a 25g block of Fimo.First, to get equal sized pieces, roll the clay into a snake approximately 6-7mm diameter, and cut off small slices around 7mm long.Next with all the pieces cut, roll them in to a ball.Push each of the balls into a flat teardrop shape, using fingers to make a pointed end, then a knife or other sharp tool to make a dent in the top to form the heart.Repeat for the rest of the hearts.Finally push the cocktail stick into the heart, and place on a baking sheet in the oven according to the instructions on your polymer clay.
Once baked, remove from the oven and allow to cool before using.
Mini Pancake Stacks
Heart canape sticks look super cute in these little pancake and blueberry stacks. Or add a piece of crispy bacon, a drizzle of maple syrup and a sprinkle of icing sugar, as we did for the actual party.
The party guests loved these maple bacon pancake stacks.
