I saw these at a local craft fair a couple of months ago and decided to make them to use as center pieces for my sweet 16. My party isn't until the end of march, but i wanna get an idea on how to do it. Any Suggestions?

I found instructions for this very thing a few months ago http://ediblecraftsonline.com/candy_bouquets/index.htm
I even think they have this exact thing in the instructions. I hope this helps. Wink

I have seen these done with half a Styrofoam ball on top of the glass for fullness. The candy is glued to cover the ball, then you glue the ball on top of the candy filled glass. Makes for a very full, pretty "soda".

It looks like in this one, the candies are kinda exploding over the sides... or maybe I'm just seeing it wrong? I dunno.

I would say to fill the sundae glass with some candies, then glue other candies onto floral stem wires (not expensive, find them at any craft store with a floral section). Bend the candy stems however you like so that they drape prettily over the glass, Add more stem wires with lots of curly ribbon attached. It looks like a stick candy for the "straw," or you could use one of those huge fun curly straws.
