53 To make a fence out of butter. Take butter or May butter and sugar, knead it in, so that it becomes sweet, and then take an icing bag and fence it around. The fence posts that go with it, make from cinnamon sticks. Also there belongs inside the fence, roasted fish or whatever you have that is good.
