Ever wonder what dessert needs in order to cross that line from delicious to dazzling? Turns out freeze-dried Skittles might be the key! Here’s why those of us who slave away in kitchens have discovered freeze-dried Skittles, and how they have revolutionised the world of desserts, turning otherwise normal desserts into culinary couture – to-die-for creations worthy of a 5-star accolade from Bon Appétit magazine.

The Magic of Freeze-Dried Skittles

What Are Freeze-Dried Skittles?

Let’s backpedal a bit before we get into their decorative function: what exactly are freeze-dried Skittles? The vibrant, minimally sized fruity candies are processed with an ‘ultra-rapid freeze-drying’ process that removes water, preserving both colour and flavour. The final product is brittle, crunchy and intensely fruity candy that’s ideal for decorating cakes.

Burst of Flavor

But there is one simple advantage to using freeze-dried Skittles: they add crazy, concentrated fruit flavour to your desserts. I mean, just bite into a dessert that’s garnished with a lizardy candy and you get a sudden fruity explosion that jazzes up the sweetness of the dessert.

Dessert Decoration with Freeze-Dried Skittles

Visual Appeal

Part of the joy of a dessert can be the visuals. With the candies, like a splash of colour and a burst of texture that immediately pops, Freeze-dried Skittles add an element to whatever you’re decorating that can literally make your dessert work of art. Like a simple bowl of ice cream.

Versatility in Decorating

Once freeze-dried, it is possible to engage in all manner of sweet-art design, such as using the Skittles to simply create a pattern, or to fuse them into a shape that adds a pop of colour, or to spell messages. Really, anything.

Enhancing Texture

Texture is another critical part of dessert design. You can garnish a dessert with a texture that contrasts with the softness of a cake, a cookie, or a silky pudding or ice-cream with a freeze-dried Skittle. And it will not only make the dessert taste better; it will also enhance the overall impression you convey.
