We saw, we craved, we strategised, we crafted, we silly happy (sniggers).
Remember when you grinned silly and eagerly anticipated a well-deserved treat as a little being? Well, An indulgent and welcomed weekend of pure creativity – crafting some marshmellow cones and eating sprinkles off our sticky fingers from time to time.
12 flat-bottomed ice cream cones
1 cup white sugar
1 tablespoon gelatin
2/3 cup water
1/2 teaspoon vanilla essence
Food colouring (optional)
Fairy dust (edible glitter) is also optional
Pour the sugar, gelatin and water into your pot. Stir until combined.
Slowly bring to the boil and when boiling, reduce heat so it boils lightly.
Keep on low heat for 10 minutes without stirring.
Remove from heat and cool a further 10 minutes.
Place the liquid into your kitchen mixer with the food colour and vanilla essence and mix until it becomes light, creamy and silky looking (approx 10 minutes)
Spoon the mix into the cones (or pipe it!) making sure you fill the bottom so they won’t tip over (you can dip your spoon in some cold water to help prevent sticking)
Add sprinkles and fairy dust, and voila! Gorgeous fluffy marshmallow cones!
