I was browsing through a cupcake magazine owned by my church pastor's wife-- she's the main inspiration for all of my baking ideas. And, I came across this:
All it required were candy melts, parchment paper, & a piping bag. The melted candy is scooped into the piping bag, then squeezed onto the parchment paper into pretty designs.
I thought, Wouldn't it be nice to make an attempt on these little candy designs? So, I tried them on a birthday brownie piece I made for my brother's lovely woman.
Helpful hint: If you don't have a piping bag, or you are saving up for a shiny new set (with all the creatively-shaped nozzles), a Ziploc bag works, too. A freezer bag works even better! It's more durable & it prevents the candy melts from exploding out of the bag. Simply cut the tip of the baggie into the desired size. :]
Here they are...
That was really fun!
