Creepy Crawlers

Lisa, Betty and I made these for Easton's 3rd birthday. It took a lot of different candy and different colored frosting. We used the basic buttercream frosting. We discovered that using the no-taste red food coloring from Wiltons doesn't leave a bad taste in your mouth since you have to use almost the full container to get that rich red color.  For the butterflies we used an M&M for the head,  pretzels for the wings, and piped on the rest.  The worms were black frosting covered with crushed oreos and gummy worms.  The lady bug's head is half of an oreo with M&M's as eyes and dots for the body.  The dragonfly is jordan almonds for wings and jelly beans for the body, and Whopper for head.  Spiders we cut black licorice for legs and M&M's for eyes.  The beetles were baked in Wilton brownie pop mold, frosted, and we used M&M's for legs, Whopper for head, and piped on dots.  Caterpillar was baked in mini muffin tins, frosted and we used M&M's for his eyes.  For the bumblebee we used a star tip and piped on stripes, M&M's for eyes, and white chocolate covered pretzels for wings.
