- Crumble the fruit cake into a bowl. Then add your cream cheese. Beat until it resembles cookie dough.
- Roll into balls and place on a tray. I use a small melon baller to help me get even size balls.
- Refrigerate until they are firm.
- Dip in melted chocolate and place on a tray that has been covered in baking paper.
- Make it fancy by sprinkling on crushed candy cane, choc sprinkles or drizzle with white chocolate. You can even roll them in coconut. Whatever takes your fancy. I also like adding essences to my dipping chocolate - so in mine i did some orange, some peppermint and some plain. Have fun and be creative!

- Organza or Chiffon or other synthetic fabric
- Needle and thread
- Beads or brads
- Matching felt
- Elastic, bobby pins or clips
Step 1. Cut circles of fabric. About 4 or 5 pieces depending on how full you want your flower to be. My pieces start from about 2.5cm(1inch) and the biggest is about 9cm(3.5in).Step 2. Light your candle and singe the edges of each piece of fabric. You won't need to put your fabric IN the flame, just hold it above and the heat will make it curl. This can take some practice. Don't hold it over for too long or it will melt completely. You need to be quick and move it around.
These are all the pieces done. The bigger ones i've singed in the middle of the petal so it's not so bowl shaped.
Step 3. Assemble. Just lay the pieces on top of each other.
Try it with different fabrics and colours. You can also use them to accessorize your clothes if you want.
I made this one out of ribbon for my 6yr old niece and used brads in the middle instead of beads.
