I made some simple candy melt toppers the other day – so simple, that I didn’t even think about blogging them. I snapped a couple of pics on my phone to share on Instagram, but that was it. But those posts were a hit, so I thought I’d do a quick post here on the blog.
I loved trying this technique – I’d never done it before and I’m wondering where it’s been all my life! I simply printed out some anchors to trace, then put parchment paper over the printout, then piped on the candy melt, using that template as a guide. Then after they were dry, they peeled right up and I stuck them on the top of cupcakes. Super simple way to make store-bought cupcakes have a personal touch. Win win!
I melted my candy melt in a bowl and then spooned it into a piping bag, but I love this idea from Wilton and will try it next time:
So once I realized how easy this technique of candy melt toppers was, I looked around and found some fun ones I want to try:
