As one who appreciates the finer things in decorating sweets, that is, lollipop sticks, it was inevitable that I would discover Washi Tape, the best thing ever. How, oh how, did it take me so long? Here I’ve been painting stripes on my lollipop sticks with food coloring like a fool. This is neater, quicker, easier, and all around better. I don’t know that I’ll ever leave a lollipop stick bare again.
There are plenty o’ resources out there, so it’s not like I couldn’t find it easily, either. If you google “Washi Tape,” you can see what I mean. I got mine from the etsy shop, Pretty Tape.
To make these cupcakes, I just wrote “North Pole” on a cupcake with an edible writer. Skewer with a lollipop stick all the way through the marshmallow, then top with half a jelly bean. Wrap pieces of Washi tape around the lollipop stick. Insert into a cupcake. My cupcake is topped with fondant, brushed with corn syrup, then coated in sprinkles.
