They were a lot trickier than I expected and I think a lot of practise will be needed to get them perfect but overall I was pleased with the result.
I used a very dark blue glitter dust, white pearl balls, aqua sugar crystals and blue glitter flakes. This contrasted well with the cranberry red colour middle but it did prove a little problematic coating the red sponge mix with white candy melts as it required a few coats to stop the red showing through.
I wrapped each one individually in cellophane and finished with a blue ribbon.
I have taken photos for a tutorial so watch this space for more details but for now I leave you with the critics Malcolm, James and Eloise who all gave them a thumbs up!
