You need 2 bundt cakes, frosting, and candy.

1. Cut the rings in half and arrange them in a slithery pattern, frosting them together.

2. Carve a little cake off the sides of the nose, then frost the entire snake.

3. Add the gum ball eyes and the Fruit Roll-up tongue. Decorate the rest of the body with candy spots such as M&M's. If you are really talented, try decorating with frosting. (See amazing picture above)
