I made these little cuties for Lily's sixth birthday party. I got the original idea from Martha Stewart.
I iced the bodies blue and used yellow icing to make a bead of icing down the center. I broke off the bottom of the pretzels and them stuck them in the icing. I then added another bead of yellow icing to try to hide the bottom of the pretzels and make sure they had enough icing to stick. I used M&M's to make the eyes. I think mini-M&M's would have worked better.
The kids loved them and I think they turned out cute. My dearest little love Megan took these pictures.
