You’ll never guess what I was doing when I thought this one up. Never! Ok, you might get an idea when you see what I used to make my edible confetti…
See that little guy peeking in from the corner? That’s right, I was shredding cheese! Might seem like a strange time to come up with a new idea, but my brain pretty much processes everything in terms of “could be cake” or “definitely not cake”. I had used a rasp to finely grate chocolate over desserts in the past, so why not a cheese grater to make festive candy confetti!?
- Pink candy melts (or whatever color confetti you want to make)
- Small square plastic container
- Cheese grater
Melt candy melts and pour them into a small, square container.
Let the melts set up.
The shreds come out best when the block is at room temperature. You’ll get pretty curls that way, as opposed to ugly crumbles, if the block is too cold.
I’ve used this edible confetti to top cupcakes and even as a cake finish in my class Cakes in Full Bloom.
Since we all have hearts on the brain, here’s a quick way to use your edible confetti to dress up a buttercream finished cake.
- Parchment paper or wax paper
- Shredded edible confetti
