If you haven’t seen this trending already, you can make show-stopping trays out of sugar and it’s beyond easy. All you need are some peppermints, parchment, and a baking tray. Pop it in the oven for a few minutes and you’ve got yourself a colorful and edible plate. The candy can even mold in bowls or cups while it’s warm to become different shapes. You can place candy, cupcakes, or just about anything else that’s room temperature on your peppermint trays.

Put all that questionable hard candy you get from grandma’s and restaurants to good use.
