Each clown was made with yellow cake and vanilla frosting rolled into balls and dipped in white candy melts. Mini m&m noses and trimmed ice cream cone hats were then added immediately. Regular m&ms were attached to the tip of the hats and lifesavers were attached to the bottom for shirts. Eyes and mouths were then added using black and red candy melts with a toothpick. The hair was also made using red candy melts and a toothpick — I kept tapping the candy melts as they were drying to leave a messy spikey-hair-like texture.
