Marshmallows

Is there anything more fun than marshmallows?
Why yes,

marshmallows with food colored faces!
And is there anything more fun than marshmallows with faces?
Why yes,
marshmallows with stylish icing hairdos!

They're super easy and fun to make. All you need is food coloring, a thin paint brush, icing and of course marshmallows. Now I really want to have a house party just so I can fill all the snack bowls with silly faced marshmallows instead of chips!

Very Cute! My Favorite is the one with sunglasses and yellow hair. Thanks for sharing

lydia. said...

SUCH a cute idea!
i'm definitely doing this with my little brother and sister. :)

Jamie Lane said...

I think I could eat all of them except for the blue one with her eyes closed. She just looks so peaceful and unsuspecting...she would get to live in the freezer forever and make friends with the frozen peas.

Pink Velvet Bird said...

Super duper cute! I'm going to make a vegan version of this for my next pot luck!

Thanks for posting!

My next house party will be thrown in honor of marshmallow dudes and dudettes. I can't wait

frannie said...

i love your ideas. Just to let you know how you inspired me. My husband and I went to europe and we need to be able to identify our luggage. I doodled all over them in black marker. I had a great time. We were standing in line to check in and someone say "oh did your kids colour on your luggage" I just smiled and said nope ... just me. I was really easy to find our luggage.
Thanks for the inspiration

Haha so cool!

lady said...

Those are so cute! I love marshmallows and I love frosting, so these could be dangerous in my house.

Did you know they make food markers? They might not be as bright as the food coloring you used, but they might be easier to control for little kids.

miumiupapaw said...

too cute. makes me happy just looking at them. thanks katie. :)

Carolina said...

Now I have marshmellow cravings! And they look so much fun. :)

Deanna Neiser said...

i LOVE this! i really think i'm going to steal this idea from you and do something like this at the highschool group at my church. haha.

I would love if you could do me a huge favor and take a look and leave comments on my blogs and follow it. I'm doing my senior project and i need to get comments from other people :] thanks!

tschitschi said...

another little thing to smile about: in Danish, marshmallows are called skumfidus - isn't it just the quirkiest name?

Denise said...

Hi Katie!

I just saw this video and had to think of you!
Must be amazing to come across this in NY! :)

Valentia said...

You are so amazing.

You're post just made my day! (:

najodleglejszy said...

I just finished reading the WHOLE blog. I REALLY enjoyed it, but from the other side, now I'll have to wait for a single notes and it'll only take me a few seconds to read it... :) but well, I guess they'll be the most colorful seconds in my life!

mindsurgery said...

Awesome! Love how the addition of a face makes anything more fun :)

Reminds me of a brand of eggs here in Australia with smiley faces printed on the shells. It's always struck me as such an wonderfully simple, happy way to give something boring a bit of a smile:

twig_tea said...

My brother and I did this today! we didn't take photos before turning them into rice crispie squares, however, and when the marshmellows melted together they made the grossest colour rice crispie I have ever seen (it kind of looks facial mask mud coloured?). Still, delicious! and a lot of fun :)

princess trina said...

These are so freaking adorable. Totally made my morning! There is a woman on etsy who makes adorable marshmallow bubble bars. (http://www.etsy.com/listing/48741575/marshmallow-gang-bubble-bars-4oz-to-5-oz)Not quite as cute but almost. I am trying to convince myself that I have the patience to do this or keep it in mind for years down the road when I have kids.

Bonjour dear Katie! What a darling idea, a gazillion thanks for providing all of us with such brillant projects! I made some "faces de guimauve" for a small brunch affair I had. I was late and in a hurry, but it still turned out quite wonderful. Here is the link to my facebook page:
https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.10150478243767702.375619.605452701&type=3&l=7d492127c3
I am mostly a fiction writer; yet I can't refrain myself creating things with my ten little fingers. Hence my "robot-sculptures", which are assemblages of plastic "parts" I collect; hense my Nonpareil Monsters... Cheers for you Katie! Have a luminous 2012 !
