Be a Candy Detective
We choose candy and snacks that already have shape, texture and color. It makes our job so much easier. By choosing the right candy, half of the work is already done for us. Then we get to sit back and listen to the oohs and ahhs. For this project, we chose candies that already look like little cherries and blueberries. All we had to do was create a frosting lattice crust and call them Bake Sale Pies! How-To:
Place the red or blue candies on top of a frosted cupcake, side by side, to give the effect of of cherry or blueberry fruit in a pie. Then, pipe a lattice top and give it a crusty edge with cocoa-tinted frosting from a resealable bag.Get the recipe for Bake Sale Pies
