"Summer Bloom"

I love single white flowers with a hint of yellow. It reminds me of a fresh breeze of an August evening after a hot day. I found a way to make Calla Lilies using Airheads® candy. I love Calla Lilies because they bloom throughout the year and come in many colors. Shown are a one-tier version and a two-tier stacked version for special occasions. So simple to make, yet sensational.
