Well....I should have checked the weather report because we had a wonderful week of sunny and dry days but the night I made these birch twigs the clouds rolled in and the rain came back. Sooo...humidity was 96%. Alas.
This morning the twigs were soft and sticky instead of crisp and dry, and as the day wore on (humidity today was 76%) the twigs got stickier and sadder and less like twigs and more like failure. They taste like sticky chocolate marshmallow treats which isn't so bad but I wish I could have tasted them as they were intended to be. I skipped buying raspberry essence and left them with just the vanilla extract so this project didn't require a big investment of resources or even time. It was quick and easy, even the piping!

|stiff and glossy peaks|
|are they trees or sticky marshmallows?|
