Its been a long time since Aberdeen Football Club had anything to celebrate so a cup final clash against Inverness Caley Thistle has got Dons fans in a bit a a frenzy. The sheep are indeed on fire. What better to mark the occasion than some Tunnock's Teacake woolly friends. If you don't understand the sheep connection unfortunately I am not in a position to clarify. Lets just go with what Foodie Loon told the Bairns. Aberdeen is a country team and there are a lot of sheep in the country.
You will need...
Giant Chocolate Buttons
Royal Icing Sugar or Ready made White Icing or White Chocolate
I could only get mini marshmallows in a mix of pink and white so the surplus will be need to be used for pink pigs, elephants or poodles. Or perhaps just eaten straight from the pack.
Melt your chocolate and brush it on to completely cover the teacake. Stick on the mini marshmallows in a single layer all the way round the bottom of the teacake. Continue in layers until the whole teacake is covered. Pop your sheep body in the fridge to set.
Make up icing, melt white chocolate or use ready made icing to draw sheepy faces onto the giant chocolate buttons. I used black nonpareils to give them pupils. Attach the faces to the marshmallowed bodies with either chocolate or icing. Herd them back in the fridge to set.
Eat and enjoy whilst cheering the Dons on to Cup Final victory. If truth be known only one sheep remains for the big match. Dolly will be duly set on fire when the title is clinched. Watch this space...
The Dandy Dons only went and won the cup! Not exactly their finest performance but with the score still 0-0 after extra time it all came down to penalties and when it counted they duly hit the back of the net. To celebrate we attempted to set the sheep on fire. Alas a wee bit of smouldering and charring was all that could be mustered. Perhaps we should have doused him in something alcoholic first. I reckon Foodie Loon will be pretty well doused at whatever time he rolls in. Plenty sair heids in the Granite city the morn.
