My mother makes a mouthwatering mincemeat muffin.

That is painstakingly precise work and the end result is quite spectacular. I’m not sure which one I like better – the clean lines of the 1st one, or the elaborate frills of the 2nd.
What do you do with them when they are finished?
I like them both too.
I have asked myself the same question – what to do with them once done. At first I was tucking them into open spaces on book shelves. Then I found a suggestion that you can use plate hangers and put them on the wall. That is what I’m doing now!
Wow – I wouldn’t have thought of that. It’s a brilliant solution.
