Oh boy, it’s the end of Summer. No more days out on the lake, sun-filled adventures, or sleeping in the mornings. But, the kids are back in school, and I will rejoice loudly. Even though it was in the 100’s here in Sacramento all summer and still is, I’m still holding on to a little bit more of Summer with this fun tropical fruity edible terrarium. Not only was it fun to make, but look at her! She is just the sweetest little thing. She looks bright and sparkly with fresh summer fruits like passionfruit and peaches. This tropical scene is all edible, including a passionfruit pudding ocean, sandy graham cracker beach, and fondant palm leaves to round it all out. Add a touch of glitter, and this is one summer scene you will want to eat over and over. But stare at her 1st; she is just the cutest with all those peach and purple tones. This edible terrarium is a great dessert or breakfast treat for any party, hosting an event, or even to celebrate Summer, or in this case, an end to Summer.

Believe it or not, super easy. For the fondant palm leaves, take your fondant and roll it out over the molds. Once filled in, remove the extra fondant with your fingers. Then, carefully remove the fondant from the mold. I like to place them on a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Once all the leaves were made, I placed them in the fridge or freezer to harden them.
To assemble, spoon your pudding into the bottom. Then layer the “sand” on top. I placed them in the fridge for a bit to get a little bit more firm. I put the palm fondant leaves in the back. Next comes the sliced peaches. There is no wrong way of doing this; it’s like making a flower arrangement. Every one is different. I then placed a half of passionfruit. And that’s about it! Added some purple sea moss for a pretty detail.
