Doing my first chocolate candy plaque this weekend. Will be using the Elmo pan. Any suggestions on what not to do or do you some great advice.
Melt the candy melts slowly over heat. Be very sure not to get any liquid into the container. Paint on a thin coat first. Let it set up before building up the next layer and so on. Once completely finished with all layers place in fridge for an hour or two, it will naturally contract enough that it will easily release from pan when turned over. If you must tap it, do so gently, it's less likely to crack. HTH
