with left over petit four squares.

I did and it was GOOD!!!!!

I had about 10 squares left over and she was wanting to play with them so I gave her the go ahead and she knew how to do them after watching me all morning make her dad some.
BUTTTTTTTT she didnt want to use the apricot jam I used to brush the tops with before adding the fondant.

Well she must have been listening when I told her about simple sugar flavored syrups and jams/jellies because she took out the bottle of cherry cheese cake snow cone syrup we just made last night out of the fridge and brushed some on the tops.


Goes well with the yellow cake. She may be on to something.

Excellent!! If i left my preteen boy with them, he'd eat them all (without decorating them!) LOL

What is so great is that the snow cone concentrate I buy has a shelf life of 3-4 years.

So I can make up as much as I need when I need it.

Guess I need to go back over to southern snow's web site to see what else I can buy to use as a simple syrup!!!!!

1 gallon of syrup makes (5 fifth bottles)

5 lb. sugar
2 quarts plus 1 pint of water
4 oz. of flavor concentrate

heat the water to boiling and add the sugar stir and remove from the heat. Cool to room temp.
At this point you can with a funnel divide the syrup into 5 clean and sterilized fifth bottles.
Add the flavoring and refrigerate.

Half recipe

2.5 lbs sugar
40 oz water
2 oz flavor concentrate

Follow the same recipe as above.

Cherry cheese cake syrup

1 oz. cherry concentrate
1 oz. cheese cake concentrate
Or add the concentrate to the way you like the taste, some like more cheese cake and less cherry.

Add to syrup when it comes to room temp.

NOTE you can also mix the syrup with warm water and not boil it. Most snow cone businesses will not boil their water to make the syrup. I do just to make sure all is well with the recipe.

I store it up to a month in the refirgerator. )around here it doesnt last that long maybe 4 days.) icon_lol.gif

Check southern snow's web site for current flavor concentrates. All of them are good.

Believe it ornot, many kids love the dill pickle ANYTHING.

The great big dill pickles are a great seller in out hs concession stand.

As for snow cones I cant bring myself to try it.

I'm sitting here wondering if we could possibly use Lorann's flavorings to make small portions of this. recipe. I'd never be able to use up even a quart of the southern snow concentrates just for my family cakes, but it sounds so good.

Wonder if a snow cone business would sell a few ounces? We only have 1 vendor here He is only open wed-sat.
