Some of us may not be quite as artistic and steady-handed as others, and that can be rather irritating when it comes to decorating cakes and cupcakes. You can’t quite pipe on the pretty flower or design that you had in mind, but just smearing on regular icing seems boring, so what do you do? I found this great little trick to make the easiest, prettiest cupcake toppers with marshmallows; trust me, it’ll save the day.
Hold the marshmallow sideways and cut four slits, dip your fingers in cornstarch (or powdered sugar) to prevent them from sticking to you as you fan out the slits to form the flower shape. Next, cut the bottom off another marshmallow, roll it into a cone, and use its own stickiness to “glue” it to the center of the flower. That’s it! Then you can color your flowers with food spray and make all your cupcakes and cakes look stunning!
