Wow...I'm sure glad you asked, Frenchy, because my search led to an awesome cupcake contest where all the winners are posted...fun (link is below)
I originally had found this on flickR posted by HayleytheCaker but was skeptical that it was her own creation...turns out it is and she was one of the winners in this contest:

If you're a cuppy lover this link is a MUST see (it's safe):

MA, the salad wreath reminds me of a story of my best friend's mother. She was married right before Christmas. As a newly married couple, setting up house-keeping, etc., money was tight. However, as a new bride, she was determined to make a merry holiday dinner for Christmas for her new husband. Unfortunately, she was limited to what she had in the cupboard - which was the ingredients for a spaghetti dinner.

So she made the pasta...but dyed it bright green with food coloring. Placing it in a wreath-shape, she placed little meatballs dipped in red pasta sauce around it. Then she drizzled more red sauce like a ribbon. And she sprinkled Parmesan cheese "snow" and proudly took it to the table. Her hubby Pete, a confirmed meat and potatoes" man, took one look, turned as green as the pasta and could not eat a bite.

The story was told every Christmas, and, after having six children, it was said that it was all uphill from that point on.

...I love that story, kathleen.
I wish we had a pic of it to post here.
Meanwhile, we'll just have to settle for
this one...but hers was 10X more creative!!
So funny.

Oh, and some miniatures just for you, kathleen

I just adore the miniatures. It amazes me the detail and proportion. I cannot imagine doing anything so detailed - much less on that scale!

Thanks!

Thank you for enlightening
us with that french tradition

I have seen poppers that look like this (below)
sold here in the usa but not sure if they
have candy in them. I have never bought them.
