Luckily all of the girls at Paper Sundaes are wonderful, and they let Shana and I have the weekend off for our trip to the mountains! (Photos still to come, I promise! I just need to get them from her!) While we were away, I coloured this cute Meljen's image, as they are our sponsor this week! Our challenge this week is 'Anything but a square or rectangle', so this should definitely cover that! :)
Before I gift this, I will wrap the entire thing in cellophane to keep it all together, and to protect the marshmallows!
Lighting this was a struggle, so you get two shots for this one! Plus a close-up:
I've tucked hot chocolate mix and mini marshmallows inside, and tucked in some Marshmallow skewers. Both marshmallows are dipped in Callebaut chocolate, and then one was dipped into broken up candy cane bits. My daughter was kind enough to hammer a candy cane to bits for me :)
You can find the template for the coffee cup on the Scor-pal site here! I did modify my pattern to make mine bigger than their instructions. I also had trouble adhering the bottom and keeping the shape right, so before I glued it, I cut an octagon to fit inside it exactly, and another to glue to the bottom for extra stability. The added benefit of this was that now you can't see all of the unfinished strips in the bottom!
