    I shall get brainstorming, although I already have a pretty good idea of what I'm going to do!
    Working over most of the weekend though so will have to hope no one steals my idea in the mean time!!

    The thing that makes it even better is that my camera cost £40 from ASDA about 2 years ago. The quality isn't great but :cool: The Queen is just loving life

    I've seen a few queen jelly moulds around and thought that could be a good idea for a queenie replica.

    Is it possible to decorate wobbly jelly... I wonder :holmes:

    You could make a jelly and try to decorate it....then you'll find out. If it doesn't work, you'll still have some nice jelly and loads of decorations to eat

    Even if it turns out badly, it could result in some really funny photos.

    Must try harder than last time

    The local community is having a street party and most of the neighbours' houses have some sort of bunting on them. We haven't managed it yet, although aiming to get some tomorrow

    Count me in

    Sounds like a plan - I was thinking of making a cake shaped like a guillotine, but I think that'd be too difficult.

    I'm living in Miami for the next three months and I'm really homesick, so jealous of all your BBQs and street parties can't wait to see some pics!

    My friend was playing "Thwack a Rat" where you drop a rat/sock/something down a tube and you swing and try hit it when it comes out the bottom. Quite difficult but it was a stand at a jubilee party and was only about 50p a go. She dropped something when she paid, and I was stood next to her, bent down to pick it up, and despite being right there next to her, the woman running the game dropped it anyway, and my friend swung.. and swung all the way round and hit me right in the nose!

    Hiya,
    This is my contribution which I made with my sis. It's a guiness and chocolate cake. We piped the union jack on it but it didn't come out too well! Cake was nice though.

    This was posted from The Student Room's Android App on my HTC Vision
