The layered look is one of the most pleasing ways to mold candy?and one of the easiest. A great idea for holiday candies: red, green and white for Christmas, lavender, yellow and white for Easter, orange, yellow and chocolate for Halloween.
Adding color details to candies makes them more realistic and much more fun! For large areas of color, it's best to paint the melted candy right in the mold before the whole candy is molded using a decorator brush. Or, for very small details like vines, mouths and messages, melted candy should be piped onto molded candies using a parchment bag with a small hole cut in the tip.
