Break up the chocolate in a bowl and microwave till melted, whilst scrunching up the shredded wheat.
Add about a tablespoon of golden syrup to the melted chocolate (it keeps it melted longer, which is easier for the children) and then add the shredded wheat.
Have a good lick at your spatula when you have finnshed mixing!
Scoop out and place in to the cake cases, this is the chocolate straw.
Add you Jelly Baby Jesus, very gently as not to wake him on to his bed of straw.
Then cover him in a royal icing blanket. I buy premade royal icing for the Christmas cakes, so just save it. I rolled it out for the boys to cut.
Then enjoy scoffing your Jelly Baby Jesus Cakes!!
Sorry if this offends anyone, but we love it.
That's the funniest thing I have ever seen. Not offended, nope! 😀
How adorable! (And don't tell anyone, but I think I'd be licking the spatula too. Yum!)
That is wonderful. How fantastic and looks so yummy too! suzie. xxx

These are excellent, love it!
I couldn't wait to see what a 'jelly baby Jesus cake' looked like, love it!
Did you know that before the 17th century, this is similar to how the traditional mince pie looked? They used to be made in the shape of a manger, filled with mincemeat (real meat & fruit in those days of course) and then a pastry Jesus laid on top of the open pie. All this was banned (or at least discouraged) by the Puritans in the mid 17th century, who thought it was idolatrous (if that's how you spell it), so mince pies became round, and the baby Jesus removed from that time on. You're reviving an ancient tradition here!
what a giggle
How cool are you Jude!! Bet you were a swot at school, you have made my day. I am to be a trend reviver!!
I need to see all your Jelly Baby Jesus cakes too Ladies!!
B has a bit of a Baby Jesus 'thing' – she asked FC to bring her 'baby Jesus in a manger' in her stocking last year. She'll love these.
So did they still eat them head first?
