If using a pattern, place letter pattern on cake board, cookie sheet or pan; tape parchment over pattern. If not using a pattern, tape parchment onto cake board, cookie sheet or pan.
Melt Candy Melts candy according to package directions.
Cut a small opening in the tip of the bag. Start with a hole smaller than necessary, widening the opening slowly until the candy flow matches the thickness of the font being used. Hold the decorating bag at a 45? angle at 3:00 (6:00 for left-handed decorators) with tip or the bag slightly above the surface. Trace pattern or pipe letter free-hand. Chill until firm, about 3 to 5 minutes. Make extras to allow for breakage.
Using spatula, carefully insert under chilled candy shape and lift away from the parchment.
It?s best to start outlining at the top of a pattern working down to the bottom. This keeps your arm from covering the pattern.
Some fonts may require filling in the letter outline. Use the same or complementary Candy Melts candy to fill in.
