It's still bleak and wintry here, but spring is already bubbling over in my kitchen. Heaps of marshmallow and meringue were whipped up this weekend and then tinted in the softest pastels. I'm so ready for the season's lightness and effervescence - I can't wait a moment longer to embrace it all!
Sugar cones make great little vessels in which to carry fluffy homemade marshmallow. To make it a ringer for soft-serve, I piped it with a large French decorator tip. The colors and flavors were inspired by two paint swatches I've been toting around in my purse since late December. Maybe someday I'll get to use those colors on a wall, but for now they look pretty good on dessert.
