"These were a big hit with the children in our Bible Club! I couldn't find the decorating icing and used markers with edible ink. I also had trouble finding small skewers, but my husband cut larger ones for me. They were fun to make and eat!"

"so easy...instead of the decorating icing I used Candy melts (melt in microwave put in a ziploc sandwich bag and snipped a very small part of the corner to use as a piping bag) for the decorating icing, and with this I also "cemented" all the pieces together so that the skewers weren't needed. I made this for my daughters Kindergarten class and the kids loved them."

"Cute and easy idea. However the small wooden skewers are not so easy to find, at least not in my area"
