 Marien,

What red cinnamon candies do you use and where can I find them?

Marien was my Mom. the red cinnamon candies are little dots. I have not looked for them for years but would probably be in the baking aisle like sprinkles are, by the icing.

Thry are decoration so I would not worry about them. Use a piece of maraschino cherry instead unless you like the fire of the cinnamon.

They are in the baking supplies aisle. I have a jar of them by McCormick.
