Candyfloss:

We had a great time after all the admin stuff was over making some candyfloss. Some people were interested in trying MSG (a savoury flavouring) in the candyfloss which resulted in some interesting flavours.  

Sun Cake!

Hayden one of our lovely members made a cake for his moon phase display and was kind enough to share it with all of us.
