Tint portions of melted white candy lavender, pink, yellow and green; leave about 1/4 amount white. Mold flower candies using painting method. Trace 12 fence and 4 leaf patterns for each cake on waxed paper; outline and fill in with melted candy in cut disposable bags. When set, overpipe leaves with veins using melted candy.
Cut sheet cake into 2 in. squares. Cover with melted candy. Dip sticks in melted candy; attach flowers and let set. Insert in cake. Attach leaves and fence posts with melted candy.
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.

I thought this was really cute so I decided to try it. I made it for my mom and surprised her at work with it. I found it easier in making the flowers and fence the night before. I used a little frosting to stick the fence on to the cake. My mom loved it and her co-workers were even asking for one. While it looked nice and tasted great, I do think I could've made it better. I sometimes become a perfectionist with my baking/decorating. I will defintely be trying it again very soon.
