Piping in the new year

Making biscuit bunting is trickier than it looks. I’m not the world’s neatest piper – I’m sometimes embarrassed to show my efforts to the family – so goodness only knows why I attempted it for my newspaper column.

Being terrible at piping is also bad for your health. I make double the amount of biscuits because I know things are going to go wrong – and end up eating the ones that don’t make the grade.

My new year’s resolution is to get into shape, so I’d better get practising with the icing bag!
