Maybe its because I'm ancient, but I can remember these snowball cakes from years ago, filled with gooey marshmallow and covered in chocolate. So when I saw them on offer in my local shop I bought some.
Imagine my disappointment when I opened the packet and saw the size of them, plenty of packaging but not much snowball....
In my amazement I got a tape measure and measured the base and it was just one and half inches across. Another case of deception from a manufacturer.
In days of yore. lol, they were 3 times this size but then so were a lot of other things. e.g. Penguin biscuits for instance.
On a positive note, I have at last finished the Autumn Crazy Patchwork Block.
All I need now is to find a nice frame for it.
Close up of one side. The old man's beard is a bit grey, but I do believe that this is the colour they end up after the rain an dust gets on them.
