Easy Strawberry Mice
Hard to believe it, but it’s true. My granddaughter Indy will be 4 years old on Monday. Her mum organised a cat theme birthday party, and all the food and activities had something to do with cats. My contribution was strawberry mice, recipe below.
Each child was presented with a cat collar (made using a ribbon and velcro, with bell and name tag) when they arrived.
The activities included:
Find your name in the kitty litter (scoop provided)
Pin the nose on the cat
Cat face painting
The food included cat shaped cookies, little individual jellies topped by a fish, cheese platters, cat shaped cookies and strawberry mice.
You will need:
A punnet of strawberries
Almond flakes or white chocolate buttons (ears)
Liquorice laces for the tails
Chocolate cake decorating balls
Cut each strawberry in half, lengthwise.
Make two slits for the ears and push in half a white chocolate button or almond flake.
Using tubes of cake decorating icing for writing, make two dots for the eyes, and one for the nose. Press the little balls into the blobs.
Poke a hole in the other end with a cocktail stick, and push in the tail.
Arrange with triangles of cheese.
Lola had a good look at them. Bad girl, she’s not supposed to jump up to the table.

Sounds like a fun party! Did you find your name in the kitty litter box? Lovely Lola being a good girl.

Hello Susan! No I didn’t find mine! I was too busy keeping the family cat away in case she decided to use the litter tray… 🙂

These mice look interesting. I am sure the Rainbows would love to make them
