How to Make

  • Frost cupcakes as desired.

  • To create letters, microwave candy melts in a quart - size freezer bag 1 minute on 50%. Squeeze bag to move candies around,then continue to microwave in 15 second increments until all candy is melted.

  • Cut a small opening in the corner of the bag. On wax paper, pipe letters using the chocolate. Let dry 5 minutes, then gently peel off and place on top of each cupcake.

  • Tips for Taking a Great Photo:
    • Avoid clutter. Keep the background simple -- your cupcake or sweet treat is the star!
    • Daytime, natural light is best. If your area is bright enough, try taking the photo without the flash.
    • Upload a horizontal photo. If you crop the image on your computer, make sure you keep a landscape 4:3 aspect ratio.
    • For best results, make your image 1200x900 (or "save for web").
    • With a digital camera, you can take as many photos as possible and choose the best one. Have fun!
