  • Cut string candy into stems and cut fruit roll-up into leaves. Decorate pumpkins while still soft. Let cool completely, at least 20 minutes. Draw faces onto pumpkins using decorating gel.

Cook's Notes:

Combine red and yellow food coloring if you don't have orange.

Feel free to use candy to create the faces instead of decorating gel.
