Planning some cake decorating for a kid's party? Here are some adorable and simple ideas using candies and other everyday ingredients. To cut marshmallows, gum drops or any other soft candy for decorating, coat the blades of your scissors or knife with a little non-stick spray. This will prevent the sweet treat from sticking. For simple flowers, snip pastel-colored mini marshmallows into slices for petals with little candies for the center. Create smiley suns by surrounding a slice of a yellow gum drop with candy corn. Then, pipe a happy face on the gum drop with chocolate frosting. Use thin strips of green fruit leather to make curly cute designs on top of a frosted cupcake. Then, accent with small, round candies. Try creating more ideas with your favorite candies. The possibilities are endless.
