Anyone can write out a place card for the party?but wouldn't an edible candy place card be much more special and fun? There are lots of ways to use candy plaques molded in cake or muffin pans. You can create unforgettable holiday gift cards, centerpieces, cake toppers and more. For rectangles, use a loaf pan or mini cake pan. For circles, use muffin pans. Attach a molded candy for a great finishing touch.

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.

Gingerbread Man Candy Place Card is rated 1.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from After buying a Gingerbread Man cookie pan I was excited. My excitement soon went away after finding that Wilton did not include recipe(s) with the cookie pan. Lots of washing instructions (in several languages), but no recipe. Checked the Recipe section on your homepage, but no recipe that accommodate the size and volume of the Gingerbread Man cookie sheet i bought. Needless to say it was disappointing to me and my family.
