  1. these are really easy to make just go to the dollar store and pick up some sour gummy worms they really break up the sweet flavour from the cupcake and make it taste really good

  2. I love yours!! I like the blue sky and the clouds. 🙂 I found the Air extreme candy in the Target Dollar section after checking lots of other places – just lucky, I guess, but Target is pretty consistent with what they carry, so if you really wanted the others…

  3. These are adorable! I’m gonna make some for my 3-y/o, just for fun. We’ve seen so much rain here lately, I think these are perfect to brighten her day. 🙂

  4. The gummy candy you were looking for is called Airhead Extremes. You can find them at most gas stations. But the gummy worms definitely work. They look adorable!

  5. cute, cute, cute!! almost makes me wish I had little ones at home to make these for (almost)…would certainly be a hit at work too!!
