7) Once dry, and after it has been left in the fridge for a while, flip over and cover the bottom side with about 2 bars of chocolatey goodness. We then discovered that the underside of cadbury snacks had a criss-cross textured pattern. We replicated this with some clever work using a skewer (remember: never run with sharp objects - it can get messy).
...And the underside of the snack for comparison (to show we aren't just making this up)
8) Voila - after another session in the fridge the cadbury snack was finished. All that was needed now was the packaging. Using scissors and glue - cut, bite, rip, tear and shred your way through some suitably brightly coloured cardboard to create a work of art. (Here's one we made earlier...)
9) Arrange snack biscuit in wonderfully creative angles and do comparison shots...
... and the all important cross section.
We are rather pleased with the outcome, but it took some precision chainsaw handiwork to chop the beast up.
Be warned: should you attempt this pimp you will be eating chocolate covered shortcake 3 meals a day, with extra pieces as snacks. Well we'd better end this now: we've got some curried chocolate shortcake to tuck into...
