Hello! Welcome back to my ballerina themed birthday party series. This is the third post in the instalments. For those who don't know what I'm talking about, the Ballerina birthday party was a project collaboration that happened back in July for my cousin's daughter's 3rd birthday. I was responsible for creating the cake topper, dessert and baking the cake itself while my friend Maureen was responsible for creating the majority of the decorations, Do-It-Yourself way. For those who come right in the middle of the series, here are the DIY ballerina cake topper and the DIY Baby's Breath Floral Wreath that we used for the party, complete with tutorials and free printable templates. As for today, I would like to present you with my version of marshmallow ballerina pops. Mmmm....how scrumptious!
So, here is what you need.
jumbo size marshmallows | strawberry-jam filled marshmallows | mini cupcake patties
pink marker | vanilla malt syrup | cake pop sticks | pink-coloured sugar
If you can't find ready-to-use pink polka-dotted cupcake patties, make your own by dotting the plain ones. If you can't find pink coloured sugar, you might also want to make your own pink-dyed sugar by following this tutorial here.
Cut jumbo marshmallow half - dip one into vanilla malt syrup sticky-end first.
Roll marshmallow in pink coloured sugar.
Stack the marshmallow in the following order: bottom half of white marshmallow - cupcake patty - pink marshmallows - sugar coated top half of white marshmallow.
Note: if you can't find strawberry-jam filled pink marshmallows, any pink marshmallow will do. When stacking the marshmallows, be careful not to put the sticky bit of the cut marshmallows at the bottom.
Skewer them from top to bottom with the cake pop stick.
Tadaaaaa!!! You're done! Now you can eat ;-)
Very cute, isn't it? Best yet, this doesn't take a long time to make, and you can always change the topping according to your party theme. Drizzle it with chocolate? Oh yum! Totally coat the marshmallow? Yes, please!
Anyhow, I have to say I love how this turns out. So, what do you think? Here is a few more eye candies for you.
