Ok so I'm trying to make a Pinkalicious replica giant cupcake for my niece's birthday party this weekend. In reference to the "wrapper" part of the cake, I saw a tutorial where you just slosh the candymelts around the inside of the pan, let it harden, do another layer for thickness, and then it just pops right out of the pan... then you just stick your cake down into the mold..

i'm wondering.... wouldn't it be easier to just turn the bottom of the cake upside down, pour my melted chocolate over the cake and let it harden *on* the cake? Or would it all go horribly wrong?

SO... the question is, Can I pour Almond Bark/candymelts over a cake and expect it to just drape over the cake perfectly so I can still see the nice wrapper ridges?

Guess I should also ask this, would Almond Bark have the same affect (effect?) as candymelts?

Almond Bark melts thinner than candy melts.
