I am trying to make individual serving-size grills for Father's day. The instructions said to use the mini-ball pan and turn them upside-down to coat with red candy.

However, the candy doesn't go on smoothly since I have to spread it on. Is there any way to smooth the surface once it dries so it looks like the smooth exterior of a grill?

Why don't you pour the melted candy onto the cakes? Pretend they are large cake pops cut in half.

Do you have any paramount crystals? I use those in my chocolate to help get a smooth finish when making cake pops.

Pouring sounds good to me...set them on a cooling grid and pour the candy coating over them. If it doesn't pour smoothly, add a little spoonful of crisco and stir it in until it melts into the candy coating.

I did pour the candy - with added vegetable shortening. It didn't run over the edge. I *still* had to spread it! I wish I could just iron them!! ARGHHH.
