My daughter, being the big sister to a fussy eating younger brother, came up with a novel idea to jazz up some strawberries. This simple recipe makes them more appealing to little, and bigger, picky eaters! It involves a product I am a huge fan of. It's not especially cheap, contrary to my normal food posts, but it does last a long time, as a little goes a long way.
I originally bought Shimmer Spray by Dr. Oetker for a gothic cake I made for my daughter's birthday. It featured a dagger and I used the spray to achieve an authentic metal colour. I've since found it useful for other decoration, such as adding a little magical sparkle to children's cupcakes and even for stencilling patterns onto biscuits! By far the most inventive use I've found though, is this one, the Super Strawberry Surprise!
As you can see from the pictures, it works on other fruits too. All you have to do is dip the fruit in a small amount of melted chocolate, allow to dry, then spray a little shimmer spray over the chocolate. It doesn't matter if it isn't very neat, it just adds to the effect.
Children love their special space-age fruit and it also looks elegant as finger food for buffets and parties.
