I’m really proud of myself,
And really excited to show you my new invention.
As far as I know I’m the only person who has invented these and that alone gets me excited,
But so does the fact that I got to mix art with baking and ended up with something phenomenal!
These arty, simple creations were inspired by my rainbow gelatin bubbles and have turn out better than I ever expected.
I thought I was going to make standard round shaped bowls, but after experimenting I ended up with edible art!
From your standard mono toned bowl,
To two toned,
It’s all there,
And super easy!
It’s fantastic to make with your kids coz it’s really fun and there is no right way about it. You just go with the flow and let your inner artist shine through.
These bowls can be made months in advanced, I made mine 4 months ago and they still look as good as they did on day 1. So if you have a special event and wana wow! your guests these are a great option (“,)
The fun and possibilities you can have with these bowls are endless and so are their uses.
Here’s some of the things we have used the for:
Popcorn for movie night,
A little Greek meze of tomatoes, cucumbers, chillis, olives, salami, cheese and rocket,
A fruit bowl,
A sweetie bowl
A dried fruit and snack carrier,
And the number one favorite ‘ice-cream, strawberry sauce, sprinkles, m&ms, twix, mars and snicker sundae’.
