It is usually accompanied by a lovely cup of tea.
They are so easy and quick to make. My little boy loves to dunk it in warm milk.

Another family favourite. It takes a while to skin the wings and shape them. However it is always a pleasure seeing my little boy holding the lollipop and eating them. All the effort always pays out.
