A marshmallow is delicious enough on its own but not that impressive as a party treat or favor. Is there any way to improve upon the marshmallow? Make it more delicious? Visually more stunning? I don’t know that you can make marshmallows taste better but you can certainly redesign them. When you decorate marshmallows you create elegant, silly, wordy, flowery, or other types, and they’ll go along great with whatever celebration you have in mind. Edible marshmallow pictures have you using marshmallows as canvases for your guests’ delight.
Food markers are now turning ordinary sandwiches, cookies, and other things, into works of art. The edible ink in the markers lets you draw with vivid colors of red, blue, black, yellow, green, and more. Available online, and in some local stores, the markers usually come in a set of 5 or 10.
To draw on marshmallows you need to let them sit out for a short while. When they feel somewhat stiff on the outside you can use them as canvases. Draw whatever you want on them to create a theme or a fancy design. Draw hearts for a wedding, seasonal designs for the holidays, or just write on the marshmallows to create a sentiment for a certain occasion.
Although there are many beautiful or fun designs that you can create on the marshmallows, keep the designs fairly simple. Trying to layer one color over another can give you a little trouble.
Decorated marshmallows can be used in many ways. Stack them in a manner that allows everyone to see the designs and let guests just pick them up and eat them. Or, make ones that are especially for hot cocoa. Put the decorated marshmallows on sticks and you have cool “cake pops”.
Some food markers perform better than others; buy a quality set. Low-budget markers often look the same as quality ones but run out of ink quicker. Also, check the type of markers; fine-tip types are needed for drawing on tiny foods, like marshmallows. And, even though mini marshmallows aren’t very large canvases, either, you can still create designs like stripes and dots on them, using fine-tip markers.
White marshmallows, colored marshmallows – they’re all pretty and delicious but they don’t compare to marshmallow pictures. Use stencils, or draw freehand, to create the designs that you love best. Your guests will be shocked, but in a good way. You can bet they’ve never seen anything like your spectacular marshmallow drawings!
