Spring Colored Candy Mints

Spring time means flowers, warmer weather, Spring showers, and Color! I came across a recipe for these cute little candy mints; so easy to put together and the flavor reminds me of the filling I used to make for my Mom's chocolate, mint fudge when I was growing up. I have not tasted this filling since then, and I do not even want to remember how long ago that was!
My photo-taking is a little off because the color did not come out crisp for me. The top photo is color true.
The little mint recipe is called Cream Cheese Mints and I actually found the recipe in one of Paula Deen's magazines so I thought I would share:
Cream Cheese Mints
(adapted from Paula Deen)
1 (3-oz.) package cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup all-vegetable shortening
1/2 t. peppermint oil - or flavor of choice
4 cups confectioners' sugar
Directions:
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. In a medium bowl, beat cream cheese, shortening and peppermint (or flavor of choice) with a mixer until smooth. Gradually add confectioners' sugar, beating until well combined. (Dough will be soft and elastic.) Roll dough into small balls, and place each ball on prepared baking sheet. Press fork into each ball to flatten. Cover baking sheet with plastic wrap and chill mints overnight.

Yum. These look delicious. And so quick and easy to make!!! I'm sure you could dip these in chocolate and make a york minty patty-like candy. Is the consistency fondant-like? I'm wondering if you could roll this out and drape a cake with it...
