For our DIY savvy couples who are planning to make their own wedding favours, we have something really cute! We have 3, all adorable DIY sweet wedding favours you can create, and the only difficult bit is to keep your hands off the sweets. Enjoy.
We filled our mini glass milk bottles with our favourite milkshake flavour, strawberry! Not only does the pink colour look cute but it tastes delcious too. You can have any flavour or beverage you want. But remember you want it to look great and taste just as good. Slip the XO tag through the straw, pop in it in the drink and finish it off with the red satin ribbon, and don’t forget the mini meringue. Mini cookies and milk also work a treat.
To begin with you want to create the red tip on the wafer cone, to do this you have to heat a mixture of sugar and a small amount of water until it forms a sticky paste. Apply this to the cone using a pastry brush or a teaspoon and sprinkle the red decorating sugar. Please remember the sugar paste mixture will be hot so be careful. Leave the cones to cool for a few minutes before adding the sweet treats. Place the cones in the cellophane bags and complete the look by slipping the tag through the ribbon and tying it to the top of the bags. As with our twine, our satin ribbons come in a wide range of colours and can be personalised. So you can pick the colour of the ribbons and sweets according to your colour scheme or theme.
