Creative Ideas

When I make these the kids like the colored sugars to place around the rim, it's a little messier but you can get newspaper down and let them have a blast.

Change the frosting colors to purple, yellow or any bright color you prefer, they can all be different.

Whether it's a school fun project, making them for a party or any just about any event, these are quick and a great addition to the party tables.
