Olympic fever

It's all about the Olympics in our house at the moment - swimming in the bath, relays round the kitchen table and gymnastics on the sofa! To help fuel the excitement, we were lucky enough to get tickets to see the torch relay come to Tooting Common in Wandsworth, literally at the end of our road. It was a really fun evening and we got to see Tim Henman and the torch pretty close up.

The boys are so excited about London 2012 that I have found myself thinking about possible ideas for Olympic cake pops. Whilst doing so I stumbled across this fab idea for biscuit gold medals at not your momma's cookie and thought it would be a fun thing to do for Arlo's birthday next weekend.

I also love these Olympic torch cake cones. Such a simple yet effective idea, although I'm not sure my icing skills are quite good enough!
