Make cross plaque, filling base and 3/4 in. of bevel area with 2 pks. of Candy Melts. Refrigerate until firm; unmold. Make easels from vertical length of cross with 1 bag candy. Refrigerate until set and with hot knife cut in half lengthwise. Trim off bevel edge on bottom end of cross and easels. Pipe scroll designs and attach candy roses using melted candy in cut parchment bag. Mold cake top plaques in 6 in., 12 in. and 15 in. pans. Make 12 medium and 12 large side swags using medium and large circle cutters.

Make base board using triple-thick cake boards cut to fit; wrap with foil and attach fabric trim. Ice 2-layer 12 and 15 in. cakes smooth and prepare for Stacked Construction. Position 15 in. candy plaque on 15 in. cake; stack 12 in. cake and 12 in. candy plaque. Use icing to pipe tip 5 bead bottom borders; pipe tip 3 beads at corners.

The bead shape makes impressive borders outlines and accents on letters and designs; also a cute trim on clothing and gingerbread houses. The basis for making piped hearts and figure piping.

The drop string is traditionally used as decoration on the sides of the cake and is the basis of more ornate stringwork. Called a ?drop? string because the line of piped icing is allowed to ?drop? or fall, by itself, before re-attaching it to your cake. Pipe a row of single strings or multiple strings in rows of two or three.

Use pans as molds when making solid decorative plaques. If your pan has detail, it may be painted in desired colors as you would for any candy mold.
