GIVEAWAY!! Sugarlicious sneak peek and marshmallow subway art

UPDATE: Congratulations to our winners!! Julia, Ruth, Maureen, Regina and Cathryn!!! Your prizes are on their way. And thank you to all for participating! There will be pleeeeenty of chances to win more great prizes, I promise.

I’m back with another giveaway to celebrate the almost-release of Sugarlicious! which will be available next month. To learn more about the book CLICK HERE. I know, I know I teased you with the actual book. Forgive me!! I can’t give the actual book away quite yet. Soon, though, promise!

This week is all about…. marshmallows!! Marshmallows are so quick and easy to decorate. Of course, there are plenty o’ marshmallow decorating ideas in Sugarlicious. By the way, have you pre-ordered yet? This week I’m giving 5 (FIVE!) of you:

a signed copy of the 16-page booklet thingamajig
(called a BLAD in the publishing world) that glimpses inside Sugarlicious
AND a bag of marshmallows
AND a set of FooDoodler edible writers
so you can make your own marshmallow art.

To learn more about the different brands of edible writers and their uses, CLICK HERE to see my prior post. For fine-line decorating, I prefer the FooDoodler 10-pack Fine Line food coloring markers. Did I mention I’m giving FIVE of you a pack? I give and give for the sake of food art.

Some tips on making subway art marshmallows: 

  • Gather your words. I did some that are Sugarlicious-related, but I also considered Valentine’s Day words, like “love,” “you,” “me,” “heart,” “sweetie,” “whips” (hey, I don’t know what you are all into…)
  • Open a document with a word program and type your words in a bunch of different fonts. Then use the markers to copy the words and fonts, making some words large, some small, some vertical, some horizontal.
  • If it helps, cut out a slip of paper 1-inch by 4-inches. This is about the size of a marshmallow if you were to wrap the paper around the side of the marshmallow. Then, plan out your subway art first. I wasn’t so precise and just eyeballed it.
  • Add a lollipop stick if you like.
And I made some Valentine’s Day ones, too.
And if subway art isn’t your thing, you can do a lot more with edible writers.

    Great idea. We have tried writing on marshmallows and the markers got clogged with the cornstarch they put on the mallows to keep them from sticking. Maybe we need different food markers (pick me to win :)

I'd love a set of markers to draw little messages to my grandsons on marshmellows, cookies, etc. They would love it and love to help me! What a great way to get them interested in baking AND helping them to write (well, the 9 yr old knows how to write but hte 2 yr old doesn't!)! I love your blog and your book looks so AWESOME! How proud you must be to finally see your baby "delivered" in all its glorious colors! Just the sneak peaks you've shown are great so I imagine the book in its whole will be a great help to those of us that are new to edible decorating!
    Thank you for your inspirations and ideas.
