Make This: Alphabet Dessert Toppers
Correct me if I’m wrong, but this is a pretty darn amazing way to embellish a pastry.
I mean, a regular pie is okay. It’s got that whole hot-filling thing going for it. And it’s usually a pretty happy ratio of carbs to sugar, as a general rule. I’ll give it that. But I’ve always felt it’s missing something…
Turns out that something was an alphabet pasta pie topper. Who knew?
The attention to detail is what does it. The tiny pasta-based letters, the cutesy birds – it’s like Cinderella popped by for a sneaky slice, left her woodland creatures behind and they just decided to delicately land on a pie. They’re also a superlative centrepiece for upcoming Christmas tables. Did someone say… ham topper? Just putting it out there.
In fact, I love these dessert toppers so much I want to use them on just about everything… Can’t you just picture a ‘Happy Birthday’ topper for a pound cake? A ‘Sorry he didn’t text you back’ topper for pizza? Even a ‘Sorry the haircut didn’t work out but at least you have your health!’ topper for quiche?! Oh my. So many options.
Basically, this teensy alphabet pasta is just about the cutest way to spell out a message I’ve ever seen.
Where do you find miniscule alphabet pasta, you ask? Don’t worry. I’ve done the hard yards for you – just grab a packet here and get cracking. Those ‘Honey, I know we were on the Pill but guess what… I’m pregnant!” cheeseburger toppers aren’t exactly going to make themselves.
As for the rest, it’s pretty straightforward. A little cardboard, a little glue and Bob’s your uncle. If someone wants to make me a, “Great post, Marky!” topper and deliver it on one of those new Doritos-crust pizzas, I’d be most grateful.
