Dec­o­ra­tive flow­ers you can eat

The Coffs Coast Advocate - - SCHOOL HOLIDAY ACTIVITIES -

IT’S easy to turn marsh­mal­lows into pretty flower dec­o­ra­tions. You will need: Large marsh­mal­lows Kitchen scis­sors Coloured sprin­kles or coloured sugar Smar­ties or M&Ms To make: Use kitchen scis­sors to cut the marsh­mal­lows into thirds width-wise. You will end up with three slightly squished ovals.

Use your fin­gers to shape the ovals, round­ing out the mid­dle and pinch­ing the ends closer to­gether to make them look like flower pe­tals.

Dip the front of the pe­tals in the coloured sprin­kles/ sugar – the stick­i­ness of the marsh­mal­low will make the sprin­kles ad­here to the pe­tals.

Ar­range them in a cir­cle on top of an iced cup­cake or a plain round bis­cuit, four pe­tals to a flower, and fin­ish by press­ing a Smar­tie or M&M in the cen­tre of the flower.
