Sparkly Heart Tower

This is a tower which we made for a wedding at the end of June. The reception was in a marquee and the weather was hot, hot, hot (which was a bit of a concern - Buttercream and heat don't mix after all!) but all was well - phew!!

The hearts are made out of sugar paste (Ellie had pink and purple marbled hands for days afterwards) which was then painted with edible glue and edible glitter. Which got us thinking....... perhaps we can solve the dilemma of all parents whose children won't eat their greens. Examine the following equation:

edible glitter + peas = irresistible 'magic' veg + no tears at dinner time

If you are unconvinced by our new theorem you could always try using edible glitter in your home baking instead - it's an inexpensive way to achieve an impressive effect. The glitters come in small tubs but last for ages. Go on, give them a try they come in all the colours of the rainbow!
