I have seen some awesome pictures in the gallery of roses made from cut up marshmallows on cupcakes. Different colour marshmallows dipped in matching colour sugar. I have scoured the web and PM'd picture posters for instructions but I have had no luck.
I would love to give these a try, can someone please help me out with instructions. I read that it is an old technique from the 50's or something.
what I have read on here is to cut the marshmallows on the diagonal and then dip the sticky side in sugar. hth
It's pretty easy. Cut the mini marshmallows in half diagonally, and dip the exposed sticky parts in sugar or sprinkles. Use frosting or some kind of edible glue to put them around the cupcake, and you're done. Hope that helps.
Doesn't look like a rose to me really, but not sure if this is what you're looking for...
Is there anyway you can post a picture to see what you are talking about? Im very curious to see what they look like.
I think this is what the OP was talking about!
look at this thing!
The Betty Crocker website has cupcakes with that design...go to recipes, kids birthdays, and it is in the called flower cupcakes or marshmallow flower cupcakes. Instructions are there...HTH
KHalstead has the one I was looking for. I guess I will just give it a try and see how they turn out. I have already bought the bag of multi coloured mini marshamallows so I just have to whip up a batch of cupcakes this week end and go for it. Inexpensive experimenting. I'll post a photo if I make anything CC worthy.
Thanks everybody, I know I can always count on CC for the help that is needed.
I found a link to the marshmallow flowers I was looking for. Turns out there were mums and not roses.
Here it is if anyone is interested
Thanks kirigami for that link, those look great.
