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 did a variation on this cake, but the idea was very much the same. I enjoyed the idea of everyone getting their own personal cake, and I could make the flowers different for everyone. The fence posts were adorable, and got a very nice reaction. I added small horizontal sections between the fence posts to give the a more realistic fence look.
