Marshmallow Penguin Decorations

I recently made a video on how to make this marshmallow penguin decoration. The penguin can be placed on a pop stick or used to decorate cupcakes or a Birthday cake! These aren't quite as easy to make as the Valentine bear pops in my other video, but they are also a fun and creative craft project to do with kids. 

For more video tutorials please visit my YouTube channel "SparkedIdeas".  Here's the link to this tutorial:

List of things you'll need:
1 bag of regular size marshmallows 
1 bag of black Wilton Candy Melts
Wilton "Rainbow Crunch Sprinkles" (you'll need the dark brown pieces for the eyes) 
Popsticks (6 inches is fine)
Starburst candies (the orange and yellow pieces)
Gum paste (which can be used as glue) or
make your own frosting "glue" with 1/4 cup powdered sugar and 1 1/4 tsp water

a toothpick
a couple of small plastic bags that are water tight at the bottom

Thanks for stopping by!
