Tutorial - How to Make Candy Melt Cupcake Toppers with Sugar Stamps

How to Make Candy Melt  Cupcake / Cake Toppers and Treats with Sugar Stamps and 
Cookie Cutters

You can easily make the most adorable treats using candy melts and Sugar Stamp design sheets.  Use them as cake or cupcake toppers.  They're perfect for baby or bridal showers, birthdays, weddings, any occasion!

Supplies needed:
Cookie Cutters
Bright White Candy Melts
6" lollipop sticks
Sugar Stamp design sheets

Place Sugar Stamp sheet on a cookie tray.  Shiny side down.  Rough side up.

Place cookie cutters on top of Sugar Stamp sheet.  (If using number or letters, be sure to place them backwards so that when the chocolates are flipped over, they'll be correct!)

Place candy melts in a piping bag.  Melt candy melts in the microwave - slowly according to package directions.  You need heat to transfer the design.  Be sure that the melts are warm to the touch.

Immediately pipe the chocolate into the candy cutters. Make sure that the chocolate is touching the entire perimeter of the cutter.  Use a toothpick to move the chocolate to the edges if necessary.

Tap the cookie tray lightly to be sure that the chocolate is touching the sheet completely and to smooth the top surface.

If you're filling a lot of cookie cutters, be sure to re-warm the chocolates (for only about 10 seconds) every so often so that the chocolate stays warm.

Here I'm using two cookie cutters so that the interior heart will have a different design.

Allow the chocolate to cool and harden. Place in the refrigerator or freezer for a few minutes if you're the impatient type.

Once cool, simply peel the chocolate from the design sheet.  Push the chocolate out of the cookie cutters.  As you can see, the design lifts off onto the chocolate.  (Notice the backwards number one!)

Here's that double heart - peeled from the transfer sheet, then placed face down on top of another design sheet.  Fill the center area with candy melts.  Allow to cool, then peel off.

To make a cake or cookie topper:  Pipe a line of candy melts onto the back of any shape.  Place a lollipop stick into the melted chocolate.  Allow to cool and harden.

Ta da!  So cute and took minutes to make!  Place them on a plate as a dessert, into treat bags, on top of cupcakes or cakes, or around the perimeter of a cake!

Another option is to "glue" these with candy melts onto corresponding sugar cookies.  Adorable!

Here's that number 1 used as a cupcake topper. Use a larger cookie cutter for a cake topper.  You can make numbers or letters.  You could spell out a word using letters and multiple cupcakes.
