It’s that time of year again to make some festive gingerbread biscuits, and what better shape than a red breasted robin?  The hundreds & thousands and chocolate buttons are sure to be a hit for Christmas cheer.

Mealworms

Robins just love these but they are totally edible for us as well. In fact, in some cultures in the world they are a normal part of people’s diet. Makes a change from pigs in blankets and could make mulled wine more interesting too.
