MY REVIEW
Reviewed Oct. 20, 2011

"So adorable! I really enjoyed making these. I used a kitchen basting brush to apply the corn syrup. I only made the top of the heads black and the whole body green. I let them dry and then put them on the frosted cupcake. (They don't fall off easily) I didn't use licorice or make bolts. But just used frosting to put the m&m's on and put smiley faces on them. My boyfriend/neighbors/co-workers thought they were cute and original. I can't wait to have kids so I can make these every halloween!! :)) (Warning - it does get a LITTLE sticky!)"

"These really did not turn out well at all. Decorative gel fell of the miniature baking bits and bled through the mouth. I had to really got the marshmallows in the corn syrup because it would not cover enough but then the sprinkles started to droop off. Putting them on toothpicks helped and spearing the side also helped to put in the licorice bolts. I would not make these again. Super messy and looked terrible when I was done. Not tasty either."
