Me and my daughter had fun making these buns, she loved getting her hands messy! It takes a bit of time but inbetween we baked some iced biscuits. Like most kids her favorite part was decorating and spreading the icing really thickly and letting it run all down the sides, something the shop bought ones don't offer! The Sprinkles used on these buns are available in our online shop
