Marshmallow Cake


Lucy's birthday was this last Sunday and I was getting so excited over what kind of shape cake I would make her. After looking around and finding cakes that I thought would be to tough, I finally came up with a fun plumeria lei cake. All you need is...

Cupcakes
Large Marshmallows
Sprinkles/eatable glitter

Simply make a batch of cupcakes and frost them with whatever color you want. Then take some kitchen scissors and start to cut the marshmallows into lean slices. When you have the slices you want, take your eatable glitter/sprinkles and place them in the middle of the marshmallow. You should now have nicely colored petals. To assemble the plumeria, you will need 5 pieces for every flower. Make sure to let a little bit of room in the middle so you can place a candle. Now that you have all the cupcakes and flowers made, arrange the cupcakes to make them look like a lei.

Helpful Hint: Make sure to get your kitchen scissors a little wet to help you cut through the marshmallows without tearing them up. Don't get them too wet or else the water will make the marshmallows soggy.
