Since Mother’s Day is nearing, I thought I’d create a super simple—yet tasty treat that you can make for Mom’s day; or, for any other special occasion. I’m using very basic home ingredients, and a very cool ingredient—edible glitter. I don’t think that edible glitter is used enough on treats, haha, and I want to start incorporating it more into special event treats. Here’s how I made it: I cut some fresh strawberries, and placed them into a bowl, added about a tbsp. of sugar, and half of a lemon (juice)—and set that aside. Next I wanted to make some homemade whipped cream with a little bit of color to show that this treat would have hints of lemon in it (silly I know, but it’s fun for me, haha). So, I used some heavy whipping cream, confectioners’ sugar, and a few drops of yellow food coloring. Then I whipped them together until I formed soft peaks. Once that was done, I added two scoops of vanilla bean ice cream into a cup, added the strawberry mixture, and topped it off when the yellow whipped cream. Lastly, I took some 24k gold sugar (edible glitter) and sprinkled it over the top—and I was finished! This tasted SO good, you have no idea.
What do you think? Doesn't it look so awesome? It tasted as good as it looks too, haha. I’m going to be using this more often—especially for parties. Also, later today, I’m going to announce the winner from last Friday’s post, so if you commented to win check back later to see if you won! Have a great day.
