Witch on a Broom Marshmallow Cake by TheMarshmallowStudio

Finally!!! The time to share with you my super awesome Witch On A Broom Marshmallow Showpiece has come!!

I finished this piece several weeks back and have been dying to post photos.

As you already know, every holiday I make a special marshmallow showpiece for KRAFT Jet-Puffed Marshmallows. For this year’s Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas I decide to step up my game and challenge myself to do something different. I partnered up with FloraCraft and Chef Rubber to make one-of-a-kind sugar art.

{DIY} BACK-TO-SCHOOL APPLE MARSHMALLOW POPS

Back-to-school Apple Marshmallow Pops by TheMarshmallowStudio

Wowzers, this summer has flown by!!

Time to switch gears and get ready for my favorite part of the year – Fall and Winter. Sure I love having the kiddos at home, all the outdoor nights eating s’mores, and the hot water fun but there’s something magical about the leaves turning and the weather cooling down that makes me feel all giddy inside.

This year I’m particularly excited for back-to-school season. My boys are 3.5 and 5 years old. One will go into his second year in preschool and my other will go into Kindergarten. They are both finally going to be going to the same school and having the same schedule. Woohoo!! I’m that mom that make special gifts for the teachers and sends in special treats every special occasion. Teachers like me, haha!

To quick off this school year with A+ extra credit parent points, I’m going to be making my boy’s teachers baskets full of Apple Marshmallow Pops.

Making these pops is like second nature to me. I’ve been making marshmallow pops and art for over four years now.  Today you’re in luck my friend…. I’m going to teach you how to WOW your kid’s teachers too!

{RECIPE} SHORTBREAD CUPS WITH GRILLED PEACHES AND MARSHMALLOW DIP

Shortbread Cups with Grilled Peaches and Marshmallow Dip by TheMarshmallowStudio

For The Love Of Cheese – and peaches and marshmallows!!

This month I was asked to create a recipe celebrating cheese-filled entertainment recipes for Kraft Recipes. For the Love of Cheese… well, that’s the easiest thing I’ve ever been asked to do since I absolutely love cheese…. all kinds of cheese. From the stinky, tangy flavor of Bleu cheese to the creamy sweetness of Brie and even the simple Monterey Jack, I could eat it all day, every day and never get tired of it. I think cheese goes particularly well with bacon (hahaha what doesn’t?!) There are so many kinds of cheese and even more ways to incorporate it into meals. The possibilities are truly endless!

PATRIOTIC MARSHMALLOW CAKE

Patriotic Marshmallow Cake by TheMarshmallowStudio

I’m guessing you have figured out a pattern here…..

Every holiday I make something grand with marshmallows for KRAFT Jet-Puffed Marshmallows. Two years ago I made a whole dessert table then last year I made a Star Spangled Flag cake and this year I challenged myself to do something different. Of course I still used marshmallows but this time I used them in a different way!

With this cake, I wanted to show how versatile marshmallows are especially for cake decorating.

I used marshmallows in four different ways: fondant, Rice Krispies Treats, decorated, and camouflaged (cut and colored). (more…)

{RECIPE} PATRIOTIC RED VELVET STAR CAKES

Patriotic Red Velvet Star Cakes by TheMarshmallowStudio

It’s warm outside, the kiddos are out for vacations and every weekend is an opportunity to be outdoors and hanging out with friends.

One holiday that I definitely look forward to every summer is 4th of July. We usually have a BBQ in our backyard and have some friends and family over. Most of the time, our menu consists of bacon wrapped hot dogs, Mexican grilled corn, a salad and a few desserts. After our bellies are full, we go to the front and light up some fireworks. The boys especially love the sparklers.

Now let’s talk dessert… If you follow me on Instagram or read my blog, you  know that it’s no secret that red velvet with cream cheese frosting is my favorite cake.  I pretty much make it all the time for all occasions and holidays. Being that it’s red, it’s only natural that I would make it again to celebrate this beautiful country on its day.

There are many ways to make any cake festive. You can decorate it, you can layer it into little jars, or you can cut it into shapes. I thought making individual star cakes that were pre decorated and served would make my get together easier to manager and more fun for my guests.  These are super easy to make and always a hit!

{DIY} FATHER’S DAY EASY MARSHMALLOW POPS

 Father's Day MM Pops by TheMarshmallowStudio

June is Dairy Month, Fresh Fruits and Vegetables Month, Seafood Month and Turkey Lover’s Month…. but all I can think about in June is Father’s Day!

I have so many wonderful memories with my dad. I am lucky to say that he has been a great father to me and my siblings.

Now that I have children, he’s proven to also be an amazingly loving and fun grandpa or “abuelito” as we would say in Spanish. Every year we celebrate him with a little cake, lots of hugs, kisses and by reminding him how much we love and appreciate him :)

I’ve been wanting to design an Easter wreath with marshmallows for a long time. I finally had the chance to this year. I couldn’t just make a round wreath with eggs thought… I had to have the Easter bunny make an appearance in it!

Is Spring in the air in your city already? It’s definitely  here in Las Vegas as I type!

My second favorite season of the year is Spring. The air is crisp, the trees start getting green again and the flowers bloom all around. About this time, I get a burst of energy that makes me want to open up the windows, clean every cranny of my house and declutter everything. Hahaha, I guess that’s why they call it Spring cleaning.

{RECIPE} SLOW COOKER CHOCOLATE CHIP MARSHMALLOW COOKIE

Slow Cookier CCC_TheMarshmallowStudio

 I’ve heard of all kinds of unusual foods being cooked in slow cookers that had me intrigued. We all know the usual meals that can be cooked in slow cookers: soups, pot roast, casseroles, etc. but have you heard of cookies? I’m all about trying new things in the name of dessert so I decided to give this idea a try.  Seriously, being able to put it all together and walking away to do other things while it cooks is such an amazing concept! Whoever invented this appliance is a true genius.

{RECAP} 2013 – AN UNBELIEVABLE YEAR!

2013 TMS Recap

At the end of every year, I like to take time to look back and reflect on what was  blessings and adventures occurred during that time. I do this with my personal life and with The Marshmallow Studio. You really learn a lot about your strengths, your weaknesses and it helps set new goals for the upcoming year. For me, doing annual recaps of each year on this blogs has helped me document the growth in my marshmallow skills, and my marketing abilities. Oh and to see the progress of my photography and Photoshop skills too which have a long way to go still haha.

{PLEASE NOTE: Below each image there will be a link you can click to see the full post for that project which will include additional photos and details.}

 Christmas is my all-time favorite holiday. In my house, we really go all out. For the whole month of December we bake, we cook, we drink, we laugh, we listen to Christmas music, and we make lots of memories. There are so many Christmas recipes to choose from out there that it makes me wish there were more days in the month so I could try them all. One thing is for sure, I will be making my famous (maybe just famous in my family haha) bacon quiche for Christmas breakfast and then I’ll try something new for dessert – cake balls! Wish me luck.
