BEST THING EVER! No mess. No double dipping. No veggies handled by people first! Will definitely do from now on! Great idea for parties (needs a more environmentally friendly cup) - no double dipping and no crowding the veggie tray.
Modified this idea to made a cake for a Shark Week party. Shark fins in the "water", Sour Patch Kids under drink umbrellas on the graham cracker beach.one poor guy went for a swim, and a shark got him (red decorative icing).
