Me and Lorraine made these for some of the kids weddings, and served in little dishes at the tables. We made green, pink, and yellow, They came out really good!!
I made some and use to decorate around the edge of Wedding Cakes and Anniversary Cakes!! The picture is the mold. You can find in Walmart maybe, or other stores.
