The Wondercat School: Mini Marshmallow Flowers

OK class, calm yourselves, find your centres…shut your adorable little mouths; I’m teaching!

Since our last lesson I have gained permission from the headmaster to use a taser on naughty children…I’m feeling trigger happy so please pay attention.

touch them and it's taser time

 

This lesson will involve scissors so unless you want a pair of plastic, useless, safety scissors you should behave yourselves; No running!…except you, yes you…you can put the scissors in your mouth and run into the wall…I love teaching.

 

Five petals...can you count to five? It's one less than chicken McNuggets in a box (tip for your future careers)

Today we are making mini marshmallow flowers…

  • Take a mini marshmallow
  • Do not eat
  • Cut with scissors diagonally into two pieces
  • Do not eat
  • Dab cut edges into coloured sugar
  • Do not eat
  • Arrange decoratively onto a cupcake
  • Do not eat

Well, technically they are complete but this is my classroom and I get to say who eats and when.  Any back-sass and you’ll get a short sharp taser to the face…are we clear class?

 

The canvas for these flowers are almond sponges with blueberry jam and blueberry frosting…

artificial colours...you can eat them right before I send you home to your parents

  • 110g unsalted butter
  • 110g golden caster sugar
  • 110g SR flour
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • pinch o’ salt
  • 1 tsp good quality almond extract
  1. whisk butter and sugar until light
  2. beat in egg and almond extract
  3. fold in the rest until smooth
  4. put 45g in each cupcake case
  5. bake 25-30 mins at 160ºC until lightly golden

The jam is home made by my mother-in-law; if your cretinous relations lack the skill or motivation to provide you with similar then tell them to buy you a jar…also tell them Ms. Finlay says “shame, SHAME ON YOU”!

The butter cream is just a simple half butter to icing sugar flavoured with Blueberry Lorann Oil and coloured with a Purple Wilton Gel.  Even the moronic child who has been licking my board duster can manage that.

cakes in single file...watch and learn

 

For a little life lesson girls, the best way into a man’s pants is through his stomach…so use excess baking ingredients to your advantage (not that any of  you will be bagging a man without receiving twenty quid and a punch in the tits in return).

make the most of your resources

 

Well, I think I just heard the bell so get out my classroom.

Class Dismissed.
