|Homemade butter pats, a tasty treat for kids?|

|My snap, crackle, pop dessert|
Mrs M (a like-minded culinary friend of mine) bought some cupcakes she had made with her, they were mini bonfires, complete with twigs (made from orange Matchmakers) and red and yellow icing flames, too cute and very tasty too!
After the families with younger children had left and we'd put Missy to bed the B family, Mr Right, myself and Buster enjoyed some sparklers, something that as a child I had always loved despite the scary public information films
Sadly I have to say that sparklers, for me, have lost their sparkle. Even the slight element of danger factor didn't do it for me. Perhaps it's just part of being an adult, like Christmas becomes all about your children's enjoyment, but even Buster seemed to have outgrown the 'wow' stage and he and Master B spent the entire time trying to set fire to dry leaves and each other.
