How to paint on candy melt

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I made cakepops and covered them in melted candy melts. I wanted to add details to them but can't seem to figure out how to paint on them...it seems to bead. I've tried several different ways and nothing. Ideas?

Bakerella uses edible ink markers/pens. I have never tried it but she seems to have good luck with them.

You can also paint with colored chocolate thinned with shortening. It won't come off unless you scrape it off. icon_razz.gif

I actually tried that icon_smile.gif it worked, so I think I'll stick with that unless I just have extra money one day for pens
Thanks!
