Hi Everyone,

Is it possible to use Candy Melts to create a drip on a fondant covered cake.

I read somewhere that chocolate ganache drip should not be used on fondant, I realise candy melts are slightly different but still contain cocoa butter (I could be wrong on that).

I need to create a dripping blood effect on a cake and where I can use royal icing it tends to add too much icing to the cake.

Thanks in advance for you advice.

From all I read melts are used all the time.  Personally I have no experience at all —- never have done a drop cake   I think it would be worth the effort to try it out on some spare fondant .   Good luck & do let us know how it pans out

I use candy melts for drip cakes all the time, but I've never done a drip on fondant (because I hate it), only buttercream or ganache.  I cannot think of a reason why it wouldn't work on fondant.
