Be sure that a color has firmed up completely before dipping another layer of color. When dipping an additional layer of color, do not hold treat in melted candy for too long or the previous layer will begin to melt and blend in with other color. Keep dips quick. The longer a chilled treat is being dipped in warmed candy, the thicker the candy coating will be. To dip a cupcake, chill the buttercream topped cupcake first and thin down melted Candy Melts with 1 teaspoon of solid white vegetable shortening before dipping. This will prevent the buttercream from detaching as it is dipped in the candy. Be sure to chill dipped cupcake before adding another layer of color.
