The layered look is one of the most pleasing ways to mold candy?and one of the easiest. A great idea for holiday candies: red, green and white for Christmas, lavender, yellow and white for Easter, orange, yellow and chocolate for Halloween.

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.

Add that special touch to your cake with your special someone´s name.

Learn how to pipe beautiful rosettes, big and small, to add charming floral accents. Rosettes are a great way to create quick decorations. Different tips create different “petal” effects. Rosettes can be used to add a simple floral accent to a dessert or to cover a cake or cupcake.

Tracking the Transformers Cake is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from My son loved it. I had to make the plaque 5 times before i got it perfect (I had never done it before). Also, it is difficult working with a 16" cake when you have never done it before. It was a great experience and I am proud of the final result!
