If you have some sweet and pretty things like these babies, and they aren't ready for fridge/storage boxes yet...and in summer, with threats from little ants sometimes crawl around sweet things in my kitchen...(I almost mistook them for poppy seeds on my cake, until I realised that I've never baked anything with poppy seeds)....
I use this simple trick I grew up with...learnt it from my grandma back home.
Place the lil' sweet things on cake stand/plate/bowl, put it on a bigger plate, pour water into the bigger plate.
It may look stupid, but it works ^_^
Too bad, little ants...now you gotta learn how to swim to get to my sweets :p
