Marshmallow flowers

These pretty marshmallow flowers are simple and easy to make - you could even make them with the kids! All you need is a handful of pink and white marshmallows and you're ready to get creative.

It doesn't take much to transform your marshmallows into works of art, just a little white royal icing to act as a glue and a sprinkling of sugar strands.

These marshmallow flowers would make perfect food gifts or treats for a bake sale.


  • 14 pink marshmallows
  • 14 white marshmallows
  • 1tbsp hundreds and thousands
  • Small quantity of white royal icing

Step 1

Brush water on to the larger flat surface of 2 of the pink and 2 of the white marshmallows and dip into the hundreds and thousands. The pink ones are used for the centres of the white flowers, and the white ones in the pink flowers.

Step 2

Thread a white marshmallow on to a lollipop stick, then a pink centre and another plain white marshmallow, with the larger surfaces all facing forward.

Step 3

Rest the stick down on baking parchment. Fill the piping bag with royal icing, cut off the end and pipe icing on either side of the marshmallows on the stick, and stick 2 marshmallows on each side, piping a little icing between them, so there are 6 sweets going around the central one. Repeat with remaining sweets.

Step 4

Leave the icing to dry and then tie ribbon bows onto the sticks.
