HI! I am making some candy crayons as cupcake toppers for an end of year party. The clients wants the children's names on them and I don't have fondant letter cutters that small. I was thinking of printing the names on a "crayon label" ( sugar sheet ) and then attaching to the candy crayons.... but how do I attach them and get them to stay?? any thoughts? Piping gel?? Thanks!
Additional melted choco? Just melt say one disc and paint a bit on each end of the label.
If you fold it onto itself, just water would work. I'd consider using rice or wafer paper over a sugar sheet, though. I'm thinking the sugar sheet may be too thick?? And the wafer paper is light enough to wrap around a "crayon", adhere with a bit of water or chocolate and be good to go.
I agree with 640Cake....labels printed on rice paper may be a better bet though if the medium you are sticking it to is chocolate I would use piping gel :)....not too much...just a thin layer
Thanks all. I don't have any rice or waffer paper available so I think i will expieriment a little and if it doesn't work, the crayons will be fondant versus chocolate and that should slove the problem. (I hope) :)
Update: I used candy melts to make the crayons and sugar sheets for the labels. I wrapped the labels completely around the crayon and over lapped the sheet on the back of the crayon. I first misted them with a TINY bit of water to soften them a tad. Then I painted on piping gel, let it sit for about 2 minutes and then wrapped the crayon! It worked beautifully! The earlier crayons' labels cracked a little where I wrapped it under the crayon. That is why I opted to soften the labels first. http://www.cakecentral.com/gallery/i/3370480/personalized-candy-crayons
They are cute! Great job!
