Did you know that you can eat comets? Not the real ones, don’t be silly. Room’s 16 and 17 were lucky enough to get to make ice cream comets, using ice-cream for the ice, smashed biscuits for the rocks and a cone for the tail. I’m pretty sure the real ones orbiting space aren’t nearly as nice as the ones we had.
Everyone seemed to have the same thought that I did, can’t we eat them already! As some people crushed the biscuits with a rolling pin, my stomach was growling and getting very impatient. The icy goodness was beginning to get to hard to resist.
After a while it just felt like Miss Garden was teasing me. Then it was finally my turn, I got a scoop of freezing chocolate ice-cream and headed outside to Mr Sommerville. This was quite a messy job as we had melting ice-cream in our hands, plus a spoon full of crushed biscuits and sprinkles. Luckily I got the ice and rocks in to the tail before it fell apart.
Looking around while eating my comet, I realised how much of a mess we had made. The food that we were meant to be eating ended up all over our hands, on the ground and even in the suage drain. Hopefully I wouldn’t be the unfortunate person to have to clean it all up.
Our ice-cream comets were really messy but still delicious, and who knows, maybe next we’ll be making the Sun. I wonder what we would use for that?
