Notes

Topping ideas:
  • Sprinkles
  • M&Ms
  • Candies
  • Chocolates
  • Fresh fruit cut into small pieces, for example, banana slices or sliced strawberry.
  • Dried fruits
  • A drizzle of melted white chocolate
  • A drizzle of maple syrup
  • Tiny cookies
  • Desiccated coconut
To make the star, you can use any fruit that you have using a small cookie cutter to cut out stars. I used mango in this recipe, but strawberries and starfruit are also great.
