The sweetest designs of this season aren’t found on the red carpet, but instead on the pages of Food Network Magazine. Take inspiration from the styles seen on the pages of the December issue and create your own to-die-for candy outfits. Start with a batch of perfect gingerbread, and check out these runway-worthy duds:
How to DIY: Snip mini marshmallows in half with scissors; toss in colored sugar (it sticks to the cut side). Attach with royal icing.
How to DIY: Cut fruit leather into pants and tie and attach with royal icing. Use thinned icing to make a shirt.
How to DIY: Smash same-color fruit chews together, roll into sheets, cut holes and fill with the other color. Cut outfits; attach with royal icing.
