Press crushed vanilla wafers against bottom and partially up sides of cake. Pile jelly beans and rock candy as shown in photos.
Spoon about 2 Tbsp frosting into each of 6 small cups. Tint to desired shades of blue, pink, dark pink, yellow, orange and black. Remove 1 Tbsp black frosting to ziptop bag; seal. Stir drops of water into frosting in bowls until thin enough to paint on crackers. Cover with plastic wrap when not using.
