Sophie wanted to give out something for her baptism with her picture on it, so this is what I came up with. My mom, and the kids and I made them the day before, and my cute friend Candy tied all the tulle on. Thanks mom and Candy! You're the best!!!
Kira was our cute little model at the lunch following the baptism.
I think they turned out SO CUTE!!!
Seriously... what adult, or child wouldn't want one of these :)
If you want to do this, you will need gigantic marshmallows. I found these in Salt Lake City at a Mexican Market. I didn't write down the name, but it is on 33rd South, just above state street, on the south side of the street, across from the movie theater.
They are so huge... I wonder how they are roasted by a campfire? They are $3.99 a bag. You get 30 in a bag. They are about half and half white to pink. I bought two bags, and made 30 sticks.
You also need wooden dowels. I forgot to take a picture, but mine are about 12 inches long, and they are from Wal-mart. Sucker sticks do not work. They are too short.
I just used crystal white sprinkles from Wal-mart. You could do all sorts of sprinkles, or nuts, or coconut. Put the sprinkles in a bowl, and use a spoon to sprinkle the sprinkles over the wet chocolate.
Almond bark. Melt in the microwave. You could add food coloring if you like. I just wanted white.
You can use all sorts of kitchen tools to apply the color. Below is the end of a wooden spoon, used to make polka-dots.
Cookie cutter for shapes. If I had known I was going to use cookie cutters, I would have bought a flower or some additional shapes.
Fun memory for a special day :)
