Koralee they look wonderful, and this beautiful pink colour is so tantalizing. I'm sure you will enjoy them.

The Garden Bell said...

Well, I'm totally impressed. Nice job and the pictures and prospective are just right. You know you are really making me want to start baking again. And this looks fun too. I'm wondering how to give them a rainbow effect. I will have to think about this idea, as I'm off to the dentist this morning....icks.... Remember to brush well after these sugarie goodies.

Off and running,
T.G.B.
