Today we made 'Crocodylus Niloticus' in honour of Doctor Livingstone's search to find the source of the Nile, as well as highlighting the evils of slavery.
The Nile Crocodile in pastry form!

We made two versions but in between dodging the rainstorms, which apparently are the result of the tail end of hurricane Bertha, we ended up with the 'before' pictures of one and the 'after' shots of the second!
Watch your fingers!
The first specimen was made using shortcrust pastry and when cooked it looked much better than the second, created with puff pastry. This was due to a lot of the detailing being lost as it 'puffed' up during baking.
