Sand art comes in many forms and one of the most delicious ones is in the form of a sand art baked goods. The best recipes start with the best ingredients and the best ingredients are layered like sand. This creative way to present and offer baked goods mixes is both attractive and functional. Here is more information on creating edible sand art baked goods.
Whenever you are baking something, using precise measurement is absolutely necessary and will make the final product you are making turn out much better. Good measurement is the keystone of proper baking technique and will make a baking mix go a long way. The whole idea of having sand art in the form of baked goods mixes is to mimic the appearance of stone and sand when it is found in layers in sand deposits and mountain stones. There are many different types of baked goods recipes that you can make and put in jars for people to enjoy. You can use almost any recipe for cookies, brownies, or cakes and put them in a jar.
First, start with the jar that you will be putting the mix into. You need to make sure that it is big enough to fit all the dry ingredients of the mix. You should mix the salt that is needed for the recipe with the flour before you add it to the mix. Layer the different ingredients of the mix in the jar to make an attractive sand art design. Doing several layers of each ingredient in the jar will make the mix look even more attractive to the person you are giving it to. It is important to make sure that only the dry ingredients are included in the mix. If any of the wet ingredients, even as little as the vanilla, are found in the mix, then it will not work properly or last nearly as long. Because you are not including the wet ingredients in the sand art mix, it is important to indicate what wet ingredients are needed to complete the recipe. Follow the directions of the recipe and design a special tag that indicates what wet ingredients are needed to complete the mix. This can be handwritten on special paper or printed on paper and then embellished to make it more attractive.
Once all the dry ingredients are in the jar, close the lid tightly and ensure it looks the way you want. Then cut out a circle of fabric a few inches larger than the top of the jar on all sides and tie it to the top of the jar over the lid with ribbon or raffia. Tie the tag on that you created with list of the wet ingredients and instructions for baking the mix. You can use the ribbon you already used to tie on the lid to attach the tag or use a new one. Be creative with the jar that you use and the way that you layer things in the jar. This can make the baked goods mix even more attractive and desirable.
Try other variations of the idea of making baked goods sand art. You don’t have to make a cookie or brownie mix but can basically make anything that you need to bake that has dry ingredients. You can make pancake mixes, break mixes and any other kind of baked good mix you can think of. No matter what kind of baked goods sand art you choose to make, you can make it your own and personalize it for the person you will be giving it to so it fits their needs and tastes. This can be a very creative gift and a great way to show that you really care while saving money on the gift too.
