To add to the sense of perspective provided by hundreds of boats on the TV that day, I've made some sails on cocktail sticks to put into fairy cakes -an edible boat race! simply cut small triangles of felt (like the baby bunting) and stitch two together, making sure it's neat on both sides. When finished, wriggle in a cocktail stick and place into cake. It's important you don't fully secure the stick in so you can swap it for a clean one on the next batch of cakes. If you get really carried away, I'd pay to see a full on fondant-clipper with rigging!
