    These look fabulous. Any chance you’ve made them ahead and frozen them? If so, did they keep?

    My head is spinning with possibilities! How about red, white, and blue for the 4th, green and red for Christmas, etc. Use candy pearls for bridal events. Color the frosting black and use orange and yellow sprinkles for Halloween. The possibilities are endless! Thanks for the idea!
