I've been baking for a while now, so I've acquired quite a few different cake and cookie pans over the years. I love my madeleine pan, but it seems it has only one very specific use — you make French madeleines with it, and that's pretty much it. I was on a mission to find another use for this pan.
I've always thought the madeleine shape could also work to create little balloons, so I had to try them out in this edible craft.
Use your favorite madeleine recipe, or just Google one — you'll find plenty!
Achieving the striped colors is easy: Separate the batter into ziplock bags, and pipe the colors one at a time into the madeleine pan. The batter is thick enough that the colors don't immediately run into each other. Learn more on this technique.
Rolo Minis chocolate candies are used for the hot air balloon baskets. (If nut allergies aren't a concern, then you can swap the Rolos for mini Reese's Peanut Butter Cups).
Use your imagination to decorate the colors and designs on these little balloons. The sky's the limit.
