How do you make the candy rainbow?

Thank goodness for candy options out there that make it easy like these rainbow Twizzlers. All you need to do is shape into a rainbow and snip!

Then place into an arch inside the cello bags and add a small handful of mini marshmallows on each end for the clouds.

How to make edible gold coins for St. Patrick’s Day?

We’ve seen this idea floating around Pinterest and had to try it to make sure it worked! The key is using an edible gold spray, and also yellow round shaped cookies. 

We found that golden Oreos work best, but try to get the thin sized ones so they resemble coins as much as possible.

Make sure to add two coats of spray paint on each side. The spray we got dries extremely fast so there was not much down time in between, just a few minutes.

Another key is to spray on top of parchment paper so surfaces don’t get messy.
