I absolutely LOVE french fancies... they are possibly the most amazing cakes every created by man! I am not alone in my obsession either, my boss and most of my work colleagues share my love for Mr kipling's fondant fancies too, so there is often an excuse for us to bring in boxes of the delightful treats to work. I also love the limited edition varieties as well - yes it is a shameless attempt to sell more cakes with a novelty factor, but it works! The orange "Fiendish Fancies" are specially released for Halloween...
They're just so darn delicious! and pretty! (and also a ridiculously large proportion of the GDA of sugar!)
There were also some scrummy strawberry french fancies over the summer that went down a treat!
Let's not forget the "BIG french fancy" birthday cake variety: when one little french fancy just won't cut it!
The french fancy costume I made my boss for our fancy dress end-of-season party... out of a cardboard box, some pink wrapping paper and white wool! I told you we were all obsessed!
