    Thanks! I just made cupcakes, frosted them white and bought ice cream cones and staked the cupcakes in them with a kabob stick. Then I used M&M's for the gumballs. They turned out so cute! I think looking back at them, I would add a fruit loop to the base to make it look more like a gumball machine. You can make it stick with a dab of frosting.

    Laura - I ground up skittles in my food processor, then made the marshmallows a bit we by brushing water on them then sprinkled the skittle powder on them. Of course, the most time consuming part was separating all of the skittles. :)

    Laura - they are ground up skittles. I spearated them all and then used my food processor to grind them up into a powder. I moistened the marshmallows a bit and then rolled them around in the powder. They were so good!
