If you're looking for something easy and elegant for desserts or party trays, here's a delicious idea. Serve candy shells filled with fruit, mousse or liqueur! We've made the candies shown here in the Wilton Cordial Cups Mold, but Wilton has many other products that will work beautifully. The procedure is much like that for making filled candy?without sealing the top.
