Biscuit, marshmallow and meringue – all in one go! These sweet treat kebabs are perfect wedding treats with brilliant wow factor – ideal for dipping in a chocolate fountain. This idea came from a Martha Stewart project and of course has the Pink Whisk twist with Raspberry Sherbet Marshmallows.
Marshmallows with a twist – Raspberry Sherbet!
Ingredients:450g caster sugar1 tbsp glucose200ml water
2 large egg whites
150ml raspberry puree (from approx 225g raspberries)
2 x sachet Dr Oetker gelatine powder½ tsp citric acid
To coat:50g icing sugar50g cornflour½ tsp citric acid
Citric acid seems like a strange ingredient but it’s what gives the marshmallows their sherbety kick!
Wanting something a little bit different from the traditional wedding bake? Why not have a Lemon Meringue Tower instead. If you watched The Great British Wedding Cake on BBC2 this week – here’s the full project in Pink Whisk step by step style.
Here’s the recipe for my perfect wedding cake. Because sometimes you need a fruit cake that tastes great without maturing and one that cooks fairly quickly – like when you have 11 hours to make the whole darn thing…
I will be doing a separate tutorial for sugarpaste roses later on this week.
Little White Chocolate and Raspberry Cakes – another perfect little wedding treat – bag them up and tie with ribbon or place them in teeny tiny presentation boxes as cute little favours a little bit different!

I thought we’d start off with a project that is really simple but definitely one of those finishing touches that will be ooh’d and aah’d over. By no means limited to weddings these tea cup biscuits can be done for any special occasion including having the girls round for a brew and a slice of cake!
Taking part in The Great British Wedding Cake got me thinking about baking for your own wedding which is well within the realms of possibility for all you Pink Whiskers. It doesn’t have to be the cake, there’s lots of wedding treats we can bake up too so I’m kicking off this week with a few little treat ideas and of course the projects from the programme.
Just a quick post to let you all know that I will be appearing in the one off special
