These versatile Baking Cup Shells are easy to make and even easier to fill. Made with candy melts, these shells can be filled with just about anything--fruit, mints, nuts, or your favorite treat.

The ball shape makes bold borders and is the first step to learn for figure piping. Vary the basic look by adding stars, dots or spirals on the ball shapes.
