Homemade Edible Decorations for Christmas



This month Party Food for Girls is featured in Good Magazine with some decorating ideas for Xmas:
Xmas tree biscuits with spirulina icing (the little hand is Max's), meringue wreaths (the hand is Arantxa's friend Yana), and some icing recipes. And the editor told me that the colour palette for this issue of the magazine was based on the same palette of the recipe extracts from the book. 'Good' to hear!

  1. Beautiful! My question is: Do you eat those lovely decorations? If so, on Christmas day or when? They seem to be very tasty as well

  2. I eat the biscuits before, during and after Xmas! The meringues I like to keep and put them on the tree, but they are edible, it is up to you!

  4. Hi Alessandra! I love your edible Christmas decorations! How beautiful. I love the colors you used - very soft and gentle...not like typical red green color you know. Congratulations on the magazine feature. I feel honored to know someone famous! ;-)

  9. @ Franci e Vale, per colorare la glassa di verde ho usato la polvere di spirulina, che e' un'alga di acqua dolce che uso per i frullati di frutta (piena di vitamine) cosi' evito di usare i coloranti verdi (non mi fido molto dei coloranti artificiali, in particolare i verdi e blu). Si puo' usare anche il te verde in polvere.

    Cookie Jar, I never thought of it, but yes, what a good point!! :-)
