I made this for my son's Pre-K party. The kids loved it. The idea was from the Wilton website. Although simple it was very time consuming and rather costly in materials. Styrofoam base alone was $10, and then theres the chocolate, ribbon, cookie ingredients, etc . I did airbrush the cookies instead of using the sanding sugar as Wilton suggests. The teacher was thankful, as the sanding sugar makes such a mess when the children gobble it up.
