Easy Spring Cake Decoration

I found a super easy way to make a yummy cake look adorable!  It only takes 3 ingredients: gumdrops, mint leaves, and sugar.  Oh, and a cake.
Just check this bad boy out:
It's pretty self explainatory.  But just in case you want the official directions: 
1. Use a spoon to smash 5 gumdrops of the same color into a petal-like shape. 
2. Dredge the smashed drops through sugar.
3. Pinch the 5 petals together to form a flower.  There may be a slight hole in the center.
4. Cut a yellow gum drop in half, press one half into the center of the flower.
5. Arrange the flowers on teh cake.
6. Rinse and pat dry mint leaves.  Arrange these on the cake to your liking (I kept them on the stem and formed a sort-of laurel encircling the cake). 
Viola!  Easy, edible, inexpensible decor for your cake!  Or cupcakes, for that matter!
