These are a very cute idea and festive. Fondant is easy to work with but taste absolutely awful. The skill level on this project was not as difficult as I feared it would be. In the future I will continue to try these projects since they are such a hit with our guests. More as a decoration than a treat. I find the more decorative an item is on our table the less likely people are to eat it. As with any decorating project these were time consuming.

Fun to do - takes some time - but worth it!
