I made these with my niece for her first communion and she loved showing them off.
Plan out the project before you start it, and it makes it a lot easier.
First, do the halos and faces early in the morning to let them set.
Then, roll/cut the stars out ahead of time. I used both red and yellow spice drops (use a heavy wooden rolling pin) and the variation looked very cute.
We used fondant on top of some of the marshmallows to make the "dresses" more fabric like, and dusted the icing dresses with luster dust. They looked adorable!
I will definitely be doing this for Christmas red dresses and with green and red drops for the stars.
