Easter Marshmallow Cupcake Toppers by The Marshmallow Studio

I’m back with another edition of DIY marshmallow cupcake toppers!!

So far I’ve shown you how to decorate cupcakes with marshmallow toppers for Valentine’s Day cupcakes and St. Patrick’s Day. Now I’ll be showing you how to make 8 different marshmallow toppers for Easter.

I’ve designed 6 different marshmallow cupcake toppers for St. Patrick’s Day. Keep in mind that you can use these toppers to decorate any other dessert as well.

For all these designs you’ll need Kraft JET-PUFFED marshmallows and Sweets & Treats Boutique cupcake liners. (more…)

{RECIPE} EASTER BUNNYMALLOW AMBROSIA SALAD

Easter Ambrosia Salad by TheMarshmallowStudio_hero

 I thought Spring would be a great time to share with you my favorite Ambrosia recipe.

What’s crazy is that I grew up eating this ambrosia salad year-round not just necessarily during this season. See, in Mexico this salad is considered a dessert as oppose to in the United States where it’s mostly served as a side dish for Easter and Thanksgiving.

{DIY} EASTER WREATHS – GIRLS CRAFT DAY

Host a girls craft day and DIY an Easter Egg Wreath by TheMarshmallowStudio

Between having small children, working from home and traveling often…. entertaining seems impossible.

I still remember the days when we hosted spontaneous gatherings at our home all the time. Indeed life has gotten busy in the past 6 years but that is no excuse for not making time for friends and family. I believe that when there’s a will, there’s a way. 

I’ve been wanting to have a few of the girls over for a crafting get together. My friends at Oriental Trading helped me make it happen!!

Ordering ALL the supplies I needed from a one-stop-shop was the easy part. Didn’t need to leave my house or go to a bunch of stores.

The difficult part was deciding on which craft for us to make. My goodness, have you seen the HUGE inventory they have?!

Since Easter is just around the corner, I thought I’d be a good idea for us to make something cute for Easter to decorate our homes with. (more…)

{DIY} PRETTY BOW FOR EASTER BUNNY TREATS

DIY PRETTY PAPER BOW FOR EASTER TREATS by TheMarshmallowStudio_hero

As we approach The Marshmallow Studio’s 4th year anniversary, I’m more in love with this entrepreneur journey of mine than I have ever been.

I’ve had the opportunity to create adorable marshmallow art, design incredible showpieces, work with fabulous stylist, publish a book in two languages, travel all over the United States teaching, attend super fun conferences, partner with awesome brands, represent the biggest marshmallow manufacturer in the country, make tons of friends, expand my skills (business, sales, marketing, social media, etc.) and most importantly… I’ve been able to do it all from home so I don’t miss a day seeing my kids grow up!

The Marshmallow Studio has turned into more than just a marshmallow designs business. It has slowly transitioned into an educational blog with marshmallow recipes, crafts, product reviews, sugar art tips, giveaways and more. Since nothing is life ever stays the same, TMS is again undergoing another transition – we’re expanding our content!

I want to be able to share with you other things that make my heart flutter – DIYs, crafts, painting, home decor, baking, cooking, travel, entertaining, parenting and so much more. I already share glimpses of my other projects and personal life on my Instagram account but would like to tell the story behind them here as well for those of you who have expressed interest in learning more. You can expect to start seeing more posts with these topics from this day forth. Don’t worry, marshmallows are still my #1 passion and I will always try to keep that the focus of this blog. I hope you enjoy all the fun stuff that’s to come :)

Marshmallow Shamrock Jell-O Cups byTheMarshmallowStudio_hero

St. Patrick’s Day is one of those holidays that just grows on you. Being Mexican, I never really knew what St. Patrick’s Day was beyond the day that you were supposed to wear green to school haha. I remember one day forgetting to wear green and getting pinched really hard in my arm by some kid. Not cool! (more…)

CAP’N KEIRAN’S PIRATE PARTY

Pirate Party by TheMarshmallowStudio

Ahoy Mateys!!

Welcome to Captain Keiran’s 4th birthday party.

Months ago I told my hubs that I didn’t want to go all out for birthday parties anymore. I told him I wanted to keep it simple, inexpensive and small. Did I stand behind my words??? Kind of haha!

With lots of DIYs and pulling in my existing home decor and props, I was able to pull this pirate off on a very small budget. I’ll explain below.

{STUDIO TOUR} WELCOME TO MY MARSHMALLOW WONDERLAND!

The Marshmallow Studio - Home Office Tour

Yeay!!! Today is my birthday :)  I am officially leaving my roaring 20′s behind. I turned 30, OMG!

Every birthday, I sit and evaluate my life, personally and professionally. I think about what I’ve accomplished so far and what I still need to do before my time is up in this world. A few days ago I began  this process as I listened to 90′s hits on my computer and ate caramels. “I’ve done well”, I told myself as I looked around my home office. I didn’t mean that in a conceited way. I said that because I was surrounded by love, by family and by passion. I’ll explain how below…..

{DIY} VALENTINE’S DAY MARSHMALLOW CUPCAKE TOPPERS

DIY Valentines Day Marshmallow Cupcake Toppers by TheMarshmallowStudio

I have something NEW for you today.. well, more like this year!!

As you know, in the past years I’ve  been creating large marshmallow showpieces for KRAFT Jet-Puffed Marshmallows. I like challenging myself to try new methods, techniques, tools and products to create with marshmallows. It’s truly my favorite way of expressing my love for marshmallow art. Seeing my visions come to life, pushing the limits and exceeding expectations is what makes my fluffy heart flutter. I love it!

This year; however, I decided to switch things up a bit. I like being unpredictable like that haha! :) I think you’re going to love this change….

For my holiday projects this year I’ll be showing you how to make cupcake toppers using marshmallows!

Let’s just say, we are busy and partying all month long!

{RECIPE} GINGERBREAD MARSHMALLOW BROWNIE MAN!

Gingerbread Marshmallow Brownie Man_TheMarshmallowStudio

SWEET!!! Christmas is just around the corner and I cannot wait!

Every family has their own traditions. In my family, it’s all about cooking, baking and spending time together. We don’t have customary Christmas recipes that we do but one thing is for sure, it always involves tons of desserts.

In my book it’s just not a real celebration until you add dessert! With that in mind, for my boys it’s just not as fun unless they get to join in the prepping. I’m raising them to be involved and helpful around the house and kitchen. They love learning how to cook and bake which I’m very happy to see. I wanted to create a simple and fun recipe that they could help me with every step of the way. As with most kids, their favorite part is decorating so I thought I’d make a gingerbread man type of dessert. I’ve made gingerbread cookies in the past and for what I was trying to accomplish, that would’ve been too much work so instead I decided on a brownie!

{RECIPE} MEXICAN CHAMPURRADO – YOU’LL LOVE IT!

Mexican Champurrado by TheMarshmallowStudio

Growing up in Guadalajara, I remember drinking lots of Champurrado. We mostly bought it from food carts while out on the town during the holidays (Fiestas De Octubre, Dia De Los Muertos, Posadas, Navidad and Año Nuevo). It warmed us right up and went perfectly with the warm buñuelos, churros, crepas and donitas that we used to buy. I wish I had photos to share with you of these beautiful memories but I hardly have any from my childhood all together.

It’s almost impossible to find a good champurrado here in the United States so I’ve learned to make my own. Let me tell you what champurrado is…..

{DIY} FALL RICE KRISPIE TREAT CAKE!

Fall Rice Krispie Treat Cake_TheMarshmallowStudio

Ooooh… I’m super excited to share with you another fun little DIY treat for this Fall or Thanksgiving.

You KNOW my favorite season of the year is Fall and there’s inspiration everywhere (well, mostly on Pinterest and Instagram because sadly there isn’t much of Fall going on in Las Vegas, ever). Anyway, recently I made a Pumpkin Spice Rice Krispie Treat Bundt Cake drizzled with caramel for KraftRecipes.com and it left me wanting more. It was so good and easy to make that I knew I had to keep rolling with it. I remembered seeing the fabulous girls of Anders Ruff make several Rice Krispie Treat cakes in the past and thought…. I’ll make one for Fall!
