Edible Crowns

Posted 2013-11-08 by Lucy follow
These edible crowns make an unusual edible centre piece for the birthday table or they are just fun to make on a rainy afternoon. They are simply made of puff pastry and jelly crystals, so even small children will enjoy making the shapes and sprinkling the color decoration on. There is plenty of scope for creativity with this activity, and you may have some interesting variations in mind.

Edible crowns ready to eat


Time: 45 minutes
Age: Under 5's
Level: Easy

Materials

  • Several sheets frozen puff pastry
  • Sharp knife
  • 1 packet colored jelly crystals
  • Muffin tray
  • 1 tablespoon butter

  • Method

  • De-frost the sheets of puff pastry, then take a sharp knife to create a zig zag pattern for the top of the crowns.

  • Cut out the crown shapes


  • Take each individual crown and decorate it with a generous sprinkling of colored jelly crystals (we used green, but you could also use a rainbow selection).

  • Sprinkle with jelly crystals


  • Turn your muffin tray upside down and grease well with some melted butter (or spray on some oil) around the outside of each muffin shape.

  • Place around the muffin shapes


  • Take the decorated crown and place it around the outside of each upside down muffin shape. Repeat with all the crowns. You could add embellishments with other edible "jewels" such as choc chips or sultanas or hundreds and thousands. Get creative with your very own crown.

  • Ready for the oven


  • Bake your crown creations in a moderate oven for about 15 minutes - be sure to keep a close watch that they do not burn.

  • Try it on your head


  • When the crowns have cooled, you can proudly display them on your party table, or maybe just eat them as fast as you can. Enjoy.
