halloween teacake ghosts but today I've got an even quicker saviour of halloween sweets, which I haven't posted unhelpfully too late to create yourselves this year. Marshmallow Ghosts and Mummies.
Can you buy packs of marshmallows with just the white ones? You can for pink ones. These are the things I think about - but anyhow, you will need a pack of marshmallows and separate the white as this is all you will need. The next steps are hard work, so have the pink ones on standby to eat as you plough and solider along.
To half the marshmallows, I took a chocolate icing pen and made two dots for eyes about midway:
- the consistency means that the lines aren't quite as sharp as I would like, but you still see t
he mummy effect - or does it look more like a ninja?].
With the other marshmallows, I made two ghostly [hmmmm, not really] teardrop-shaped eyes in the top third - on reflection, I wish I'd added a screaming boo-ing mouth as well - do this!
Phew. Tough work.
...and then popped the whole lot in the fridge to set. About an hour later, I skewered the bottom of each marshmallow, ready to eat. If you have a tall glass or vase, they look pretty good all standing together - if you want to display, you could add halloween-y themed ribbons or a tag.
[alright in the back there?]
...or, if you have a halloween-y themed cup/mug or bowl, add some polystyrene or florists foam at the bottom to hold them in place.
ghost teacakes]. Quick and easy - but if not ghoulish/bloody enough, add a bit of red icing.
