  1. These look great Emma, love their little carrot noses :)

  2. Thank you, they are such good fun to make :)

  3. Not sure if I commented or not, the blog just ate my words. Just wanted to say these are brilliant. Such a fun idea. Thanks for sharing and hope you're well.

  4. Thank you so much. We all enjoyed making them and they are very light and fluffy which I am assuming is due to the coconut oil. I will be playing with it some more :)
