how to draw on food: raining jelly beans

I haven’t done a “how to draw on food” post in awhile, though these are so easy to draw, hardly merits a how-to. Those are supposed to be jelly beans raining on a bunny, by the way. Not sure if that’s clear.

I skewered the marshmallows on a long lollipop stick, found at the craft store (grease the stick with Crisco first, makes things much easier). At the craft store, I also found clear cello bags meant for dipped pretzels that fit perfectly for marshmallow kabobs. To make favors, just slide one over the lot and tie with ribbon at the base.

For edible writers, I suggest the Americolor Gourmet Writers, the FooDoodler Fine Line set of 10, or the KopyKake set of ten. Here I used the Americolor writers for all the jelly beans except the lime green one (that’s KopyKake) and I used the black FooDoodler to outline everything.

    So cute! I have never seen food writers around here, but there are no stores focused solely on baking supplies. I will have to check out Michael's.

    Very cute!

    Thank you for the suggestions on writers. The only ones I have been able to find in my area are Wilton's and they don't exactly make me happy. I'll look for the other brands online.
