Coconut mushrooms are an English sweet that I used to have a fair few of as a child. To check out the edible kind so that you know what I am talking about click here: http://www.oldestsweetshop.co.uk/sweets.asp?secid=14&swtid=191
Coconut mushrooms are really quite cute to look at and stir up memories of many a 10p of weekly pocket money spent at the local post office buying pick and mix. So of course, I decided to make myself some but ones that will last longer than my little bag of bootie from the sweetie section. Here are my first few attempts.
Now, I need to work on my dessicated coconut as I got it a bit thick and then a little small but I can say that I did at least manage to make these mushies magic...by using glow in the dark clay on the stalks.
