Pinterest Test is a feature in which my daughters and I try out one of the thousands of pins I have collected on Pinterest.  This feature will include recipes, beauty tips, crafts, etc. (you name it – I most likely pinned it!).  Feel free to follow me on my personal or blog account.

Final Verdict:

This pin was a big FAILURE!!

Easter is only days away and I volunteered to bring cupcakes for our family parties. So as soon as I saw this marshmallow flower I knew I had to try it. Last year I tried to make candy butterflies and it was a disaster. So for this year I decided to try the decoration early so I wouldn’t been stressing out the night before Easter (again). I am so glad I tried this flower early!  It was a mess! My daughter and I tried this and we couldn’t shape the marshmallow into a flower.  We used cornstarch so our fingers wouldn’t get sticky but we still couldn’t make a flower. After going through 10 marshmallows we finally gave up. I did find another pin for marshmallow bunny ears which is easy and really cute.  I think these will be a hit at our party!

    I feel like a lot of the things that I try to do from Pinterest don’t work out 🙁
    And I really don’t get it! The only thing I can think of is maybe it was too humid to work with marshmallow? I love those bunny cupcakes though! So cute!

      Pinterest can be a hit or miss. That might have been the problem but it was so frustrating. We kept watching the video and they made it look so easy. Good thing I tried this early and the bunny cupcakes look cute. Thanks Em!
