Flowers on a cupcake, and the flowers are marshmallows, and the marshmallows have sprinkles! Well, worth a look.
These cupcakes are reportedly EASY to make look professional.
How to make these creations?
Take small white marshmallows and cut them in half with scissors. You can collect the snippings in a bowl. As you can see, the sort of already resemble the shape of thick little flower petals.
Then you take those snippings and put them in plastic zip-lock bags with one color of sprinkles in each bag (or you can use another container — it’s just easy to shake the sprinkles onto the marshmallows in a bag).
Shake the marshmallows and sprinkles — they will stick to the cut end of the marshmallows, because that end (the end that was cut recently) will be sticky and a bit gooey. They won’t stick to the rest, which is more powdery.
Prepare the multi-colored marshmallows. Then ice the cupcakes the regular way and arrange the marshmallows (now Petals) rightside-up on the cupcakes.
You can put them all in a flower basked for an extra touch.
Lets look for a moment at alternatives to sugary marshmallows. Did you ever think of making them yourself at home, and using honey to sweeten them?
One note: you can vary the amount of starch you put in, to manipulate the consistency of your products.
You can also flavor them with more than just honey: for example, cinnamon and other spices. Vanilla extract, maple syrup, coconut, and tapioca, too.
However, candy might be difficult to make. Its said to really depend a lot on knowing and controlling TEMPERATURES.
