Pumpkins, colorful leaves, apples, corn and haystacks…
All signs of my favorite season of the year, FALL!!
With a new holiday coming up, it’s time for me to make a new JET-PUFFED marshmallow project, yeay!
FloraCraft provided me with fabulous Styrofoam shapes and Chef Rubber provided the fabulous colorants and decorating supplies.
I got started by designing the project on paper like I always do. I knew I wanted it to be something like a Thanksgiving cornucopia so ended up making a Fall Harvest Basket.
I used JET-PUFFED StackerMallows and fondant punches to make the leaves.
I then used Chef Rubber’s Colored Cocoa Butter colorants to paint the leaves red, copper and green.
Let me tell you, colored cocoa butter is amazing and super versatile. You can pretty much use them to color, draw, paint just about anything.
I finished off the leaves by dusting shades with Chef Rubber’s Deco Dusts.
Once I had finished making all the components, I began by putting the showpiece together.
Let’s me get started with telling you about the top – the pumpkins!
I used three 4″ Styrofoam Balls to make the pumpkins. I sculpted the balls with grooves prior to covering them with marshmallow fondant. I inserted pretzel sticks for the stems and then made vines with green isomalt.
This was my second time playing with isomalt. Making these cute little twirlies was such a blast.
I added a green apple and red apple to the basket.
Both apples were made with 2″ Styrofoam Balls covered in marshmallow fondant. I used two softened KRAFT Caramels for the stems.
I attached marshmallow leaves all around the basket with brown royal icing.
Now let’s talk about the base –
I sugar coated JET-PUFFED Brownie Bites and attached them all around the Styrofoam Tampered Pot Insert shape to form the basket.
I decorated the base with leaves, isomalt vines, a marshmallow corn and a “Happy Fall Y’all” sign.
The corn was such a cute little detail. I made is using a JET-PUFFED Jumbo Marshmallow cut in half. I attached Mallow Bits with royal icing then airbrushed them yellow. I finished it off by making the “husk” with green marshmallow fondant.
Doesn’t it look super cute?!
I downloaded the FREE tag from Sister’s Suit Case.
I used a paper punch, glued it to a lollipop stick and embellished it with a yute bow. It was perfect!
I wish you and your a very Happy Thanksgiving filled with yummy food, sweet memories and tons of dessert 🙂
