A few days ago, I thought it would be a good idea to make marshmallow pumpkins for Jumpy’s birthday party. It all started really well. I had all my props and ingredients out and got started yesterday night. I got the idea from Sara at Mum turned Mom, who made Lego marshmallows a few months ago and I spotted quite a few other examples of decorating marshmallows as an easy alternative to cake pops.When I was shopping for Jumpy’s party a few days ago, I decided to make some and buy what I needed. I tend to do things at the last minute and I did not read instructions on what to do or what to buy. I thought it would be pretty straightforward.I would normally have used white chocolate and orange food colouring, but I could not get my hands on get dairy free white chocolate so I bought some Wonder Melts for my local craft shop as they were dairy-free.
Here is what I was planning to use:
Orange wonder melts
Black edible food pen
It took very little time to coat all the marshmallows and let them set on egg boxes. It took no time at all.
Am I lying about them turning out perfectly? No way! I was chatting to Ceri, who blogs over at Natural Kitchen Adventures just over a week ago, and we were talking about the fact sometimes you find recipes on the Internet and they look incredibly appetising, but when you try them at home, the result is awful, and at times inedible. Do not attempt making spooky marshmallow pumpkins my way; it does not work!
