It’s beautiful, waving, very nice. We shouldn’t chop it down – JD, 5
Alongside the pretty orchid my mother-in-law gave me for my birthday, there currently sits a 35cm tall tree made of marshmallow. Quirky, eh?
It was sent to us by Cuckooland who have created the Pink Marshmallow Sweet Tree (£39.95) as a pretty treat or gift with an important aim – 10% of each sale goes to the charity, Breast Cancer Care.
Arriving through the post wrapped in cellophane and padded inside a cardboard box, the tree came out pretty unscathed, especially since I was actually holding it upside down!
The tree is a nut-free and, according to the manufacturers, will keep for 6 months if stored in an air-tight container. It smells divinely of sweet chocolate and strawberries, but as it’s not suitable for vegetarians, I left the taste testing to JD and Mark, who said it was delicious and confirmed it didn’t taste stale (I was worried as I took a few days to get round to photographing it). I was quite jealous watching them tuck in – I want to eat a tree too!
Up top is a sphere of pink marshmallows, adhered to the polystyrene core with pink-tinged white chocolate. On each marshmallow is a jellied heart sweet, held in place with the same pink tinted white chocolate.
The stalk is made from cardboard tied with a pretty pink bow, and sits in a clear acrylic cube-shaped base, filled with strawberry bonbons, pink sweetie mushrooms, mini marshmallows.
You’ll also find two delicate pink icing ribbons – apt given the donation made with each sale of the tree.
