At the beginning of the school year she told me she had no talent. By October, she was decorating cookies, carving pumpkins, and planning parties. In December, she felt confident enough to make chocolates to send to her family and friends. By Easter, she was working on her own, handpainting chocolates that rivaled mine. Yesterday, my mom taught her to paint with watercolors, and here’s what she made…
This is her first painting – ever! Talented, YES! Creative, ABSOLUTELY!
Soon, she’ll be back home, and I hope she continues to believe in her creativity, to dream of a bright future and to imagine a wonderful life. I created these Fudgy Gold Stars to share those sentiments with her.
I know I’ve used this stamped fudge technique quite a lot in the last year, but it just works for so many special occasions.
I hope I’ve convinced you that fudge+letter stamps=a million possibilities.
Inspire graduates, teachers, actors, employees, students, family and friends to believe, achieve, create, hope, dream, and imagine by presenting them with Fudgy Gold Stars.
1 teaspoon clear vanilla extract or vodka (it will evaporate)
food use only paint brush or pastry brush
small letter embossing stamps or rubber stamps
Being the molds are flexible, as you press the fudge into the star cavity, it might bulge out. As you work, turn the mold over, and press around the points of the star, making sure the fudge stars don’t become misshapen.
Leave fudge stars at room temperature for at least 2 hours, so that they will hold their shape.
I like the stars that have a bit less gold on them because the fudge shows through.
Press letter stamps into the fudge creating inspirational words like, “dream,” “believe,” and “imagine.” If you prefer, you can paint the words on using black food coloring.
