Make the following decorations using melted Candy Melts®. Ornament: Using ornament cookie mold and "painting" method, make a candy plaque, filling mold half full. Pine boughs: On waxed paper, using tip 2, pipe several random branches; pull out main stem and add short needles. Also, make approximately 100 v-shaped short needles. Let set. Using tip 2, overpipe branches and attach v-shaped needles to branches. Berries: On waxed paper, pipe approximately 50 tip 2 red dots. Refrigerate all to set.
Prepare 2-layer cake for
rolled fondant. Smooth fondant with Easy-Glide Smoothers. Pipe tip 21 rosette bottom border. Position berries in rosette centers and position v-shaped needles between rosettes.
Position candy plaque on cake top. Using spatula, carefully position pine boughs on cake top. Attach extra v-shaped needles using melted candy as needed. Attach berries with tip 2 dots of icing.
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.
The rosette has the tight, swirling look of a rose, but is achieved in one continuous rotation, rather than with wrapped layers of petals. Single rosettes are also used as candleholders on top of a cupcake.
