Dragonfly Cupcakes

In their flights around and about the English countryside where Lizzy lives in Tinker Bell and the Great Fairy Rescue, Tinker Bell and the other fairies share the air space with a host of other winged creatures, including honeybees, butterflies, and — perhaps the most talented flying acrobats of all — dragonflies. Much like mini helicopters, these colorful insects are most often found hovering alongside streams and ponds. Or, in the case of this candy variety, sweetly perched atop a batch of cupcakes.

  • 4

    Arrange four Swedish Fish candies behind each dragonfly head to resemble two sets of wings.
