    7. SNAKE
      Roll the dough into a long sausage with one pointed end for the tail. Place on the baking tray in a wiggly line.
      Form the dough into a ball and make one end pointed like a snout. Use kitchen scissors to snip the rest of the ball to make prickles and also the mouth.
      Divide the dough piece into two. Roll one piece into a ball and place on the baking tray (body). Divide the other piece into two again.Roll one of these pieces into a ball and place over the larger one on the tray (head). Pole the remaining piece into a long sausage shape. Cut two pieces of the end, shape into ears and stick onto the cat's head. Place the rest of the sausage against the cat's body to form a tail.
