The B&W Photography Project Week 77

The B&W Photography Project Week 77 with PODCast and having missed a few weeks with the madness of Monkey’s birthday and then Christmas I’m back again.  Just before Christmas I was in our local Lakeland shop on the look out for some baking inspiration when I came across a set of snowflake cookie cutters. Not only would they shape our biscuits but you could press down on them to indent 4 different snowflake designs.  I was sold at that point, and then I discovered they were reduced to £2.49.  That was it, they were coming home with me.

Now of course I just had to hope that they worked as well in practice as they did in theory, and we tested them out on some gingerbread mixture.  I was so impressed with the results.

Before and after baking ……

The B&W Photography Project Week 77

I infilled a lot of them with various frosted icing and they went down very well.

Monkey has some homework based on a Winter Wonderland so we’re going to be baking some more of these snowflakes over the weekend and then I’ll let him loose on the icing! His teacher has said he can either bring some into school or send in some photos, so let’s see how the idea of sharing goes down with him!

Bets anyone?  Have you played around with photographs in black and white?  Well worth joining in with the The B&W Photography Project Week 77 if you fancy trying something new in 2016.  It really shows photos in a different light.

About Over 40 and a Mum to One

I'm a Mum in my late 40′s with a 7 year old son. I had a busy life in Export Sales before my Monkey came along, but decided to become a stay at home Mum once he arrived. Now I enjoy writing my own family lifestyle and travel blog. sharing the adventures that we have as Monkey makes his journey through school. We have a cat called Brewster who makes appearances and I’m a mad Ferrari Formula 1 fan, so that expect to hear about as each season unfolds. We love reviewing toys, games and books and would love the opportunity to look at anything that fits in with our family lifestyle. We are always out and about and offering an insight on the places we visit, with a passion for nature thrown in for good measure.
