Simple but very pretty. Pipe large bands of colored buttercream icing. THen use an icing scraper to pull and blend the different colors around the cake. This multi-colored smear creates a beautiful, natural look that's unique every time.
I made these minus the toothpicks for a hot chocolate party this year. Try strawberry and coconut marshmellows as well. I may or may not have eaten a whole bag of marshmellows over a week:) (chocolate dipped marshmallows)
