Can I use the Wilton candy melts to do a melting ice cream cone cake topper with the dripping off the top? I haven't had a lot of luck with them and thinking that after I ice the cake they might become to hard and crack off. The cake is for a 4th of Judy party and it will be in an air conditioned room so it shouldn't melt...
Jeesh Fourth of July!
@rocketmom1985 , this is purely guess work as I have not tried it, but could you add warmed (not hot, just warm) Karo White Syrup to the melted Candy Melts to prevent them becoming too hard when they set up? I make modeling chocolate by adding 1 cup of syrup to 5 cups of Candy Melts and the syrup keeps the chocolate soft enough to work like clay. For drips on a cake, I would think you would use a higher ratio of corn syrup to Candy Melts, say 2 to 5 instead of 1 to 5. It would remain soft enough to cut easily without cracking.
You could also try adding cream, making a ganache.
you could add oil -- that's what i use when i don't have paramount crystals --
I've done this by melting the candy melts with cream. Three parts candy melts to one part cream.
Thank you all for your responses. I have both red and blue for the cake, so I will do a small bit of each to test! Happy 4th everyone!
