UPDATE: Congratulations to Rebecca! Her comment was drawn by random.org to win the cake pop stand and straws. Thank you to all for participating!
Finally, I actually have a giveaway for my Tuesday Giveaway Day. As you may know, I have a thing for putting treats on a stick. And sometimes pizza. And all this time I’ve just been jamming my pops in Styrofoam blocks. Silly me.
Janine of Sugarkissed.net also owns an online shop, CakePopStandCo.com where you can find made-to-order and custom cake pop stands. Or, in my case, cookie and marshmallow stands. They have stands with bling, multi-level stands, and even these crazy-cute single cake pop stands. You can customize the size and shape of your stand, the layout and the size of the holes to accommodate straws (which they also offer).
I got my personalized stand along with rainbow straws. Recognize my logo on there? Pretty cool, yes?
So I made some rainbow striped marshmallow pops to match the straws.
Do you want a chance to win a flower cake pop stand and some straws to make pops? Scroll to the end for the Cake Pop Stand Co. GIVEAWAY.
how to make sparkly rainbow striped marshmallow pops
You will need:
lollipop sticks or paper straws
sprinkles in a rainbow of colors (find at the craft store)
cake pop stand
To make sparkly rainbow striped marshmallow pops, just use my standard how-to method for sparkly marshmallow pops. (And remember, you can also substitute vodka!) Only for stripes, just dip half a side at a time.
Fill a shallow dish with 1/2-inch of water. Hold the top of a marshmallow and dip the lower half.
Hold the marshmallow over a plate and immediately coat the wet end with sprinkles in one color. Shake off excess. Let dry a bit.
Skewer the sprinkled end of the marshmallow with a straw or lollipop stick. Carefully dip just the top half of the marshmallow in the water.
Coat with another color of sprinkles. Prop in the cake pop stand to dry and serve.
