Something I learnt from this adventure… it’s very tricky balancing Santa’s hat on a whipped cream head… the next time I make these little babies, I think I will pipe in some mascarpone (or cream cheese) in place of the whipped cream for durability and resilience. No matter, the whipped cream was pretty wonderful too!
These Santa Berries just about sent me over the edge.
(Oh, sure, they look well-behaved now).
First, I had to teach them how to skate and believe me, it was no easy task. (It seems Santas are quite accustomed to staying still while the reindeer pull all the weight, if you know what I mean).
Next, I tried to generate some plays, get a little offense going, but I couldn’t seem to get the Santa Berries to move anywhere near the puck.
The flying raisin would float right in front of their path over and over again, but they failed to capitalize each and every time. Preferring instead, to simply stare…
Then, the unimaginable happened. And things really came unhinged.
I could just tell this guy’s head wasn’t in the game.
Oh the fun you can have with a little whipped cream and a handful of strawberries!
I couldn’t resist putting a Canadian twist on these Santa Strawberries that I’ve seen floating around the blogosphere…
Now, just in case anyone else is missing the original Hockey Night in Canada Theme Song, here it is –
