Traditional sugar mice made with just icing sugar and egg white, plus a tail of course!
Separate the egg and whisk up the egg white until it is all nice and frothy.
Sieve the sugar into the same bowl.
Using a metal spoon start stirring, and stirring and stirring to make a dough
If you want some coloured mice split the dough into three parts.In one add some red food colouring to make pink mice.In another add cocoa powder for fawn mice
Divide up the dough into however many mice you want (size is up to you) and make a sort of short fat sausage shape out of each section. Roll at the front to get a pointy nose and pinch either side to get the ear shape.
Using the strawberry liquorice lace push a tail into each mouse. You can cut tiny pieces to press in eas eyes or use tiny drops of food colouring gel.
Put your mousy masterpieces on to baking paper/grease proof paper and on to a tray in the fridge overnight to set completely.
