With NYE just around the corner, here is a quick and easy DIY treat, whether you are throwing
a party or having a night in, to see 2016 in with a bit of sparkle.
I picked up all of the items from the supermarket, making this DIY cheap, cheerful and easy to pick up last minute.
To start, add a little decoration to your flutes. Make a sugar water to dip the glass in and then immediately dip in to some sprinkles [I found my set from Sainsburys]:
[lightly place the glass in to the sprinkles to ensure they decorate the top - if you press in to the sprinkles, you'll end up with a pretty decoration, just lower down the glass!]
Pop in the freezer to ensure the sugar and sprinkles set for a couple of minutes.
Once set, add your fruit to the bottoms of each flute:
Now mix up your jelly:
Add enough jelly to the bottom of each flute to cover the fruit and pop this is in the fridge to set completely...
[this will prevent the fruit from floating to the top]
...before topping up with the remainder of the jelly and putting back in the fridge for a few hours to set:
Once completely set, they are ready to serve:
Add more fruit to the top, cream and sprinkles - or all three to decorate as you prefer.
Here's to a Happy 2016.
