Personal Posies Cake
Statuesque treats stand ready to please! Build the confections from candy-covered cake squares, Candy Melts® fence posts and candy blooms formed in our Dancing Daisy Lollipop Mold.
Each cake serves 1.
In advance: Make candy flowers and fence posts. Tint portions of melted candy yellow, pink and orange using candy colors.
Mold flower lollipops using painting method; refrigerate until firm. Wrap sticks with florist tape, leaving 2 in. unwrapped at bottom for inserting in cake.
Cover fence post pattern with waxed paper; using melted white candy in cut parchment bag, outline and pipe in 12 fence posts for each cake.
Make extras to allow for breakage; refrigerate until firm.
Cut 1-layer square cake into 2 in. squares (8 in. cake makes about 16 treats). Tint portion of melted candy green with a little yellow.
Cover cakes with
melted candy; refrigerate until firm and repeat with a second coat. (One pk. of Candy Melts will cover 4-5 mini cakes.)
Attach fence posts to cake with dots of melted candy. Slice spearmint leaf in half, cut a slit in bottom edge and fit over flower stick, pinch leaf to secure. Insert flower in cake.
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.
