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…)

{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!

{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!

Christmas is such a magical time of the year for me. It’s always been my favorite holiday but now that I have kids, it’s become even more special.

Growing up (and still now), my mom would go all out with decorations for the house. She collects Santas! She used spend a great amount of time in the kitchen making a decadent Christmas feast and several desserts. There’s nothing like my ma’s cookin’.

{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!
