Candy melt transfers makes decorating cakes and cupcakes fast & easy. If you can melt chocolate and have a steady hand these are easy to make and can even be made ahead of time.
Step 1: Buy supplies:
-Candy Melts come in all different colors just find the ones you want
-Disposable Decorating Bags sure you could use a Ziploc bag if you wanted but I like these better because they are thicker and easier to handle
-A Design you could get it from a coloring book or print it off the Internet
-Flat surface that can be moved around (I like to use a cutting board)
Step 2: Tape your design on the cutting board then tape a piece of wax paper over the design.
Step 3: Fill the Decorating Bags with the candy melts then microwave your first color according to the directions on the candy melts. Only microwave one color at a time. Your first color will usually be the color you are outlining with. In this case I will microwave the chocolate color first and the white one after I have finished all the chocolate designs. Make sure all the candy is melted so there is no lumps otherwise it may clog up the end when you are squeezing it out.
Step 5: Melt the next color you are going to use. For this design I am just doing black and white so I will melt the white next making sure all the candy is melted before you start. You can cut the tip a little bigger than last time but not much you still don't want it too big. Then just flood the color over where you want it to be. In this example I wanted it all white so I just flooded over all parts inside each outline. If you go a little out of the outline don't worry. Just wait for it to dry and snap it or cut it off. After you do the next color it should look like the ones on the left. Then after you let it cool off and get hard (put it in the fridge again if in a hurry) you will be able to flip them over and it will look like the ones on the right.
Step 6: On party day cover your cake or cupcakes with icing then add your candy melt transfers to the top for a great custom made design. Here are a few examples that I've done using this technique.
