COINS

Let's start with something easy to get some energies! We will need gold coins and for that i used cocoa butter drops (you can use also fondant small circles, circled confetti...). Put it inside a ZIPLOCK bag with some Magic Colours' Royal Gold Luster Dust, shake it well and TA-DA! You have your golden coins!

Make a flat base with some sugarpaste coloured in Magic Colours' Garden Green Pro Gel to place Mr. Lugh. Will help us to stick the wooden stick and make it more detailed adding some grass and the rest of the coins.
