It is very important to place stick half-way through the shape; failure to do so may result in the shape falling off the stick. Hold shape over the bowl full of candy coating and spoon coating over the shape. Allow excess coating to fall; be careful not to tap the shapes because tapping could loosen the hold of the stick. Place shape into holder and let dry. Use candies or melted chocolate to add details to your flowers and butterflies.

Cut off the bottom of the heart at a half-moon shape to attach to the body of the bee with melted coating. Hold heart until coating has completely set.

Mushroom - Form cake mixture in two pieces; one for the stem and the other for the top. Once you have your shapes made, place them back in the refrigerator for 30 minutes to firm.
