  • Step 1

    Get your area ready! Put wax paper over the area that you'll be using, set up the caulk, etc.

    I just used a tube of white kitchen and bath silicone caulk. You can get it at any hardware store pretty cheaply

  • Step 2

    *OPTIONAL*

    Squeeze some caulk out into a piping bag and mix in a few drops of food coloring.

    I didn't do this because I just wanted a "whipped cream" look. Also, most caulks are paintable once they've dried. Check the instructions on yours!

    You can squeeze the caulk through an icing tip, or just out of the tube for different textures.

    Step 4

    To make the ring in the fourth photo, roll some wax paper around your finger, tape it together, and then squeeze caulk around that. Let it hang to dry.

    Step 5

    To make the spiky ones, squeeze out a blob of caulk, and then take a toothpick and poke it in, and quickly pull it out, making little peaks.

  • Step 6

    If you have any embellishments, stick them on now while the caulk is still soft.

  • Step 7

    Let it sit for 24-48 hours! Do not be tempted to poke at them while they dry, because you could leave fingerprints in them!

  • Step 8

    Now you may carefully peel them off the paper! You can use scissors to trim off any stray pieces.

    Then, use hot glue to attach them to ring bases.

    Note: I also used this method to "ice" my polymer clay cake....

    ...and I found a bottle cap which I filled with caulk, and then stuck mini fruit slices in =]
