Candy Plaques

Anyone can write out a place card for the party—but wouldn't an edible candy place card be much more special and fun? There are lots of ways to use candy plaques molded in cake or muffin pans. You can create unforgettable holiday gift cards, centerpieces, cake toppers and more. For rectangles, use a loaf pan or mini cake pan. For circles, use muffin pans. Attach a molded candy for a great finishing touch.


Step 1: Pour Candy in Mold

Pour melted candy into center of pan cavity. Tap pan gently on counter to eliminate bubbles. Candy should be about 1/8 to 1/4 in. thick.

Step 2: Chill

Place pan in refrigerator for approximately 10-15 minutes until firm (check occasionally, if coating becomes too chilled it will crack).

Step 3: Unmold

Unmold onto hand or soft towel (tap gently, if necessary).

Step 4: Print Message

Print message, if desired, on top with melted candy in a cut disposable bag. Add a molded candy piece to convey a specific theme.
