Home, Sweet Home Cake

Candy shingles and fruit-slice shrubbery make an inviting abode for gumdrop dolls and a scrumptious treat for partygoers.

A Spot of Tea

Serve your party guests herbal tea, but give it a custom touch. Simply replace tea bag labels with handmade paper labels that fete the birthday girl.

Gumdrop Gals

For each oh-so-sweet mini doll, use frosting to join Necco Wafers, a large gumdrop, and a gumball in a stack, as shown. Draw hair with writing icing, add facial features with edible markers, and let dry. Use frosting to adhere Skittles candy pigtails.

All Dolled Up

It's dress-up time! Set out a supply of washi tape (available at craft stores), fine-tip markers, self-adhesive jewels, and ribbon for party guests to create dolls on paint sticks (paint them white and let them dry before the party).
