Place ribbon or Fruit by the Foot for band on cake.
You may sprinkle coconut on cake for texture.
Place artificial flowers or gum drop roses on cake.
Can use M&M's or other candies as well instead of roses.

Gum Drop Roses

Begin by dusting your work area with sugar.
I use large gum drops.
Place gum drop on sugared work area.
Using a rolling pin, roll into an oval shape.
You will need to use 4 gum drops.
After you are done rolling them out, cut each gum drop in half.
Take the first half oval and roll tightly. This is the center of the rose. Pinch ends to make it hold.
Take another half and wrap it around the center. Pinch the bottoms.
Continue with the remaining petals.
Roll out green gum drop and form a leaf and attach.
Spread the tops of each petal to make it look fuller.
Attach to cake.
