I love those smiley faces! They're adorable :3 What did you use to make the faces? Melted chocolate or some more chocolate frosting?

i used regular chocolate frosting.
put some in a ziplock bag, cut off a little bit of the corner and piped!
inexpensive & easy!
haha! :D

may i ask if it's also possible to use the buttercream icing to do piping? i really have no clue about baking/icing and stuff like that. TIA!

Oh, that's such a clever idea! I've always just made my own pipes with baking paper, which is annoying cause you can only use it once (unless you want a huge mess)

So gonna do that next time!
