Materials:

  • STYROFOAM™ Brand Foam:
    • Cone, 12" x 4"
  • Gumballs, one carton
  • Pre-made icing, your choice: fondant icing, one tube; light or whipped canned icing, one can; or powdered sugar and water
  • Table knife or wooden craft stick
  • Water basin
  • Paper towels
  • Optional: Small bowl, measuring cup, teaspoon (if using powdered sugar icing)
  • Optional: Red acrylic paint, medium flat paintbrush, disposable palette (paint must be food safe)

 

Instructions:

  1. If desired, paint foam cone red; let dry completely.
     
  2. Follow package directions to prepare pre-made icing tube for use. If making own icing, combine 1-1/2 cups powdered sugar with a few teaspoons of water in small bowl to a spreadable consistency. If icing is too thick, add more water; too thin, add more sugar.
     
  3. Squeeze or spread small amount of icing onto back of each gumball before firmly pressing to foam surface. Note: Gumballs will stick better if pressed firmly enough to make shallow depressions in foam surface. Let dry. If gumballs fall off, reattach with more icing.
