Surprise guests by adding marshmallow snowflakes to the after-dinner coffee. We used a recipe from channel4.com/food/recipes. Spread the marshmallow mixture about 1cm thick over a baking tray dusted with a mixture of icing sugar and cornflour. Once it has set, use a cutter greased with vegetable oil to create the shapes. Place these on greaseproof paper and dust with icing sugar. They can be made up to a week in advance if kept in an airtight container.
Espresso cups, £17 for two, including saucers, John Lewis. Marshmallow snowflakes, £37.50 for 25, Pat-A-Cake. Sugar stirrers, £3 for four, John Lewis.
