Personalize your sweet treats with edible candy cake toppers. Stephanie from Wilton teaches you how to work with Candy Melts to create custom designs for year-round celebrations. She demonstrates two different ways to melt the candy, and then shows you how to make a monogrammed letter, a spider web, a snowflake, and two-toned fall leaves. These delicate toppers are all piped from a decorating bag and harden in the fridge in about 15 minutes. They are a great addition to the dessert table at Halloween, winter holidays, birthdays, and seasonal celebrations.
