Hello everyone!

How would you go about creating this look. I don't have access to candy melts where I live.. I was thinking about using melted white chocolate dyed with paste colours... pipe it onto cake..?

What about thinned Royal Icing? Might work too.

yes that might work too.. i'm just worried about it looking too dry and brittle? i love the wet look of the paint... how to go about it?

I would color white almond bark and put it in squeeze bottles. It will have a shine when it dries.

That's an interesting cake, so creative!

jgifford, why white almond bark? i'm afraid i can't find that where i live... it looks like it's made out of white chocolate?

Because it's relatively inexpensive and very forgiving. And it take colors well. It's like white chocolate although I don't think there's much actual chocolate in it. Think of a cross between white chocolate and candy melts. You can find it at Wal Mart or most supermarkets.

You could even use Hershey's vanilla chips - - just add a tablespoon of butter when you melt them and add whatever colors you want. I would advise using the candy colors since they're oil based, but you could probably get by with regular colors since you won't need that much to drizzle on the cake.

I think I would do it with cookie glace. It dries with a shine and isn't rock hard.

I think the squeeze bottle is a genius idea rather than piping because you can make it look drippy and messy like splattered paint.

Different colored candy melts.
