Last weekend over the weekend Costa Coffee set me a little challenge, a simple, straightforward challenge of having some fun with their new range of spring treats. The trouble is my Mum always told me not to play with my food (‘Food is for eating, not for playing’ she would tell me), so for me this challenge has been rather difficult.
Opening my delivery I was greeted with the most wonderful smell (how the delivery driver didn’t tuck in I’ll never know), and my box was filled with delicious springtime treats.
Whilst our food art creations are not exactly award winning we did at least have fun eating them afterwards!
Costa Coffee Spring Treats Range:
