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.
