Make the Lattice Candy Shells
Use shortening to generously grease inside of top half of Dessert Dome mold. Place melted candy in separate decorating bags. Use desired color of melted Candy Melts candy in cut decorating bag to pipe lines in mold. Start by piping lines from edge to edge on the right half of the mold, starting in center. Repeat piping lines on the left half of the mold.
Turn the mold 90°. Use melted white Candy Melts candy in cut decorating bag to pipe lines from edge to edge as above.
Use a paper towel to clean candy off edge of mold. Use melted white candy in cut decorating bag to pipe a line around top edge of mold. Chill until firm, about 5 to 10 minutes. For easier removal, place in freezer for an additional 5 to 10 minutes. Unmold carefully.
