Wrigley's Confections Challenge

Wrigley has teamed up with "Sweets Stylist" Amy Atlas and given me (and many other bloggers) an opportunity to create!
How do you use Wrigley gum and confections in your entertaining, celebrating, or DIY-ing?
Here is what they sent me:

They also sent me 3 recipes of Amy's to aid in my creativity. I decided to experiment on my own (although her designs were super cute! There was a dress cookie and a cupcake with a scarf and mittens). My first thought was something sweet for Valentine's Day. Both of my creations are decorated on gluten free yellow cupcakes.
