Gold Star Sparklers for Christmas


The Last Detail have supplied Gold Star sparklers to adorn my little shot glasses. I have filled these with buttery apple puree, mincemeat, and tiny scoops of ice cream decorated with gold sugar beads.


Another great way to use the sparklers is to place one in each cupcake. My cupcakes are made with fresh ginger, ground ginger, crystallised ginger, nutmeg, allspice and cinnamon. A lemon icing is poured over, then decorated with a few pieces of crystallised ginger.

How about placing a Gold Star sparkler into the Christmas Pudding - light the sparkler, make your entrance and bring to the table, your guests will love it! This would be a great alternative to the traditional way of pouring Brandy over your Christmas Pudding and lighting it. Or even better, do both!

The Last Detail sell a selection of sparklers for special occasions.

Thank you Victoria and The Last Detail.

I love these, I used them on my daughter's birthday cake this year and her face lit up. I think it will have to become a tradition from now on.
