In a large measuring cup, stir together gelatin and 1/2 cup plus 1 tablespoon cold water. Let sit for 5 minutes to bloom. Add sweetened condensed milk and chopped Candy Melts candy.
In a pot, combine glucose, sugar, and 2/3 cup cold water. Cook over medium heat, stirring until sugar dissolves. Continue cooking until mixture reaches 217º F. Pour hot sugar mixture over candy melt mixture. Stir to combine, then use an immersion blender or food processor to emulsify. Strain mixture through mesh strainer to remove any air bubbles. Divide mixture into 3 parts and add icing color, gel color or Color Right Base Colors to customize.
Position cake on a cooling grid set over a sheet pan. Pour colored mixtures over the top and down the sides of the cake, swirling together. Refrigerate cake until set, approximately 15 minutes. Gently remove from grid and place on serving plate.
