Roll that Dough

It might not strictly be a holiday for South Africans, but who can resist an excuse for a party, especially when you’ve got a skull-and-crossbones rolling pin to put to use. One clever craftsman from Lithuania has seen a gap in the baking market: personalised rolling pins which have all manner of designs carved into them to enable the roller to emboss cookie dough. Known as Dough Roller, each wooden roller is lovingly handcrafted to spec, so you can request any design your heart desires. According to the company's Etsy profile, many prototypes of this product were made and tested on cookie dough before this final design was decided on, to ensure well-embossed cookies. The rollers can also make really great gifts, particularly as wedding favours, suggests Dough Roller. Check out the Etsy shop here.
