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.

The bead shape makes impressive borders outlines and accents on letters and designs; also a cute trim on clothing and gingerbread houses. The basis for making piped hearts and figure piping.

Tops in His Field Autumn Cake is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I made this for Thanksgiving. I made my own pumpkins by rolling balls of fondant and shaping into pumpkins. I also cut out my own leaves. This made making the cake more time consuming. Everyone loved the cake and didn't want to cut into it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I made this cake to donate for a cake walk contest and it was the first to go. For the most part it was easy to do. I used for the candy pumpkins molds produced a more rounded pumpkin for the top. Also for the shirt, the instructions should be clearer that this is when the Foodwriter pens are used.
