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.
