Hanukkah Menorah Cake

I know I am not the first person to discover this technique, but I thought I would share this anyway. I wanted to make "glass tiles" for a Hanukkah menorah. First I made a mold out of tin foil. I kind of squished it together to make something that looked like squares. I sprayed the tin foil lightly with oil. Then I smashed up the jolly ranchers and put the bits in the tin foil. I melted them in my toaster oven on 300 degrees for approx. 4 - 5 minutes. WATCH CAREFULLY - if they heat up too much they will turn a nasty color! Remove carefully and let them cool (I popped them in the freezer). Then I gently removed them. They look more like mosaic than actual tile, but I'm pretty happy with the result. I've posted pictures for you to see the steps.
