Candy plaque using shaped pan is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 9.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from This came out sooooo cute. I would say it's being given the medium difficulty level because of having to do it in stages. It comes out of the pan super easy, you don't have to spray anything...just make sure the pan is very clean and completely dry. Also, I forgot to get the black coloring, so I used a couple of brown M&M's turned so the "Ms" did face out ... that worked beautifully for the pupils of the eyes. So, if you don't have the black coloring or if you rarely use it and don't want to buy it just for this project ... try the M&M's.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Depending on the amount of colors being used, it can be hard to get the colors right where they need to be without "bleeding" into somewhere else. To get it just right, it can be time consuming for someone not well practiced in it, like myself.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from First time making monkey with no candy experience was successful!, I found that using a candy writer had been easier than coloring white chocolate for black eyes... You can also just fill the head to create a monkey head for projects :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I have done thise with other pans also. The biggest hit was the princess pan or what my daughters call the barbie cake pan. It was a big hit and they loved breaking it up and sharing it with the guests.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I was decorating a heart shaped German chocolate cake and made a plaque of the pan on top and pirolene cookies around the edge and three lilies on top of the plaque. Came out very elegant looki=ng.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Want to make this for a Birthday Gift. Does anyone know if the pan needs to be coated with the non-stick spray, or can anyone who has made it give me directions on how to take it out of pan.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Oops, its not being given a medium difficulty rating. I had two screens open at the time and was looking at the wrong one. This one is definitely easy.
