    Very cool idea!

    What purpose do the 100s and 1000s serve here?

      Hello Jessica,
      The 100s and 1000s are hidden on the inside of the balloon, creating a colourful (and yes, somewhat messy) surprise when you pop the balloon in front of your guests. It’s just an added bonus, they can be omitted from the recipe too.
      Happy cooking!
