    I mis-read "candies" and thought it said "candles". The scandanavian tradition of halos decorated with a circle of little candles crowning the heads of earthangels.

    You could have candies circling the bases of the candles, like itty bitty red hots. Thanks, Peeta, this is a way cool presentation!
