Painting Details in Lollipop Molds

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.


Difficulty: Somewhat Difficult


Step 1

Melt desired Candy Melts® colors in the microwave, using the Candy Melting Plate. With decorator brush, paint areas of candy molds with melted candy in one color.

Step 2

Refrigerate mold a few minutes until candy is firm, repeating for each additional color. For best results, always fill in one section of the mold at a time and let set before adding additional colors.

Step 3

To complete candy, using cut parchment bag or disposable decorating bag, fill mold to top with melted candy. Tap mold, refrigerate until firm and unmold.
