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.

If you're looking for something easy and elegant for desserts or party trays, here's a delicious idea. Serve candy shells filled with fruit, mousse or liqueur! We've made the candies shown here in the Wilton Cordial Cups Mold, but Wilton has many other products that will work beautifully. The procedure is much like that for making filled candy?without sealing the top.
