Time to decorate!
- Hold the cake balls upside down, use a toothpick to apply a bit of melted candy melt to the bottom of the ball and attach two yellow M&m's for the feet. Let it set.
- Attach the Gardettos at the back of the cake ball with a bit of candy melt and let it set.
- Remove the white portion of the rainbow licorice and cut about 1/2" strips. Attach to the top of a blue mini M&m.
- Carefully remove the toothpick by lightly twisting it while pulling up.
- Stick the mini blue M&m on top of the hole to cover it up.
