  1. My daughter picked a green doughnut this morning, so I'm thinking these would go over well too.

  2. So easy! Thanks for the idea. I'm going to try and find a mini-graduation cap cutter to do this for our daughter's party this spring.

  3. I would never think making candy could be anywhere near this easy. I have to give it a try because these are so cute!
