3 whole bags but not enough orange gumdrops even cut in half, so I soaked the white & yellow gumdrops in food coloring to try dying them

The sugar dissolved while dying in food coloring, so after they were the right color, I kept adding sugar over & over since it kept soaking in!

Cupcake icing technique: piping bag with coupler but no tip, swirl icing on, lightly spread smooth, dip into bowl of red sugar. I needed both hands to hold the cupcake to sprinkle sugar around the edge and anywhere the dipping technique missed.

I thought the decorations would be top-heavy in the car, so I used bubble wrap to prevent sliding. Still had a couple to fix with the red sugar I brought...

The chocolate smiles were so thin they started melting in my fingers when placing on the cupcakes, so I used icepacks to keep them chilled for transport & assembly. I also brought tongs to handle the chocolate as little as possible.
