      Very pretty

      Asda Micro Marshmallows:
      I love making cupcakes and recently my Mum and her boyfriend came round for afternoon tea and I made a big cupcake display with lot's of differently decorated cupcakes. One of the decorations I used were Asda Micro Marshmallows.

      The marshmallows come in a thin plastic tub with a silver plastic lid. The lid is kind of annoying as it just kind of pushes slightly into the tub and rests there, it doesn't fit tightly and so if the tub is knocked over the lid comes off and you end up with very tiny marshmallows everywhere! The tub is clear so you can see the little marshmallows inside and you can always tell how many you have left.
      The marshmallows themselves are really very tiny at about 7mm in length and about the same diameter as a silver ball. I think they are very cute especially given their pink and white colours. From what I can tell the quantities of white and pink marshmallow are pretty even.

      These are so tiny that individually they have almost no taste, just a hint of sweetness and even a good sprinkling on the top of a cupcake doesn't really add a lot of flavour but then that's not what they are there for; their job is simply to look rather fantastic and they do!
      Nutrition wise they have just 64kcal per 1g but a mighty 71.4g of sugar! To put it in context though the entire packet only contains 20g and I think that is enough to liberally decorate at least half a dozen cupcakes if not, more. They have no artificial colours or flavours and no hydrogenated fat but they do contain pork gelatine and therefore are not suitable for vegetarians.

      These cost 64p per pot and are currently, {April 2011}, on offer at 4 for £2.00 along with several other Asda cake sprinkles.
      I love these and along with some pretty vanilla frosting and a pink cupcake case they made my cupcakes look gorgeous and everyone commented on how sweet, {no pun intended}, they looked. Girly girls of all ages will love these and I thoroughly recommend them!
