  1. I do the same thing under a pieces of cake or pie. I use a raspberry sauce and mango sauce, drag a toothpick through the two sauces and put down a nice piece of cheesecake.

  2. Hi. These are SO cute and festive. I’m going to try making them. When you did the black web did you wait for the frosting to dry first? Or do you do web (gel) when frosting is wet? Thanks.
