For candy canes, fill in cavity under the hook with a small amount of white candy coating. When dry, fill rest of cavity with desired color of coating. Place stick in coating and place in freezer to set. Once set, remove sucker from mold. Use small parchment bag filled with white coating to draw candy cane lines.

Allow both to dry. Fill remainder of cupcake with solid color coating. Place stick in coating and place in freezer to set.

Flo-coat is a food coloring agent that allows you to use any of AmeriColor's Soft Gel Paste to color white chocolate and compound coatings. The usage ratio is 5 parts of Flo-Coat to 1 part of Soft Gel Paste. To color compound coating: melt 1 lb. compound coating, add 1 ½ tablespoons Flo-Coat then 1 teaspoon Soft Gel Paste onto the Flo-Coat, mix thoroughly. The Flo-Coat will smoothly and evenly disperse the Soft Gel Paste into the coating, resulting in a smooth pouring consistency. As you proceed with your work and find that your coating is beginning to set up, add more Flo-Coat to keep it liquefied. Flo-Coat will not harm your coating regardless of the quantity used to maintain your desired consistency. Flo-Coat will enable you to realize the maximum yield from your batch of coating resulting in a savings by eliminating lost batches. Flo-Coat provides a firm texture, beautiful shine, and greatly improves mold release. Flo-Coat is a wonderful candy making aid that allows you to use any of the Soft Gel Paste colors to achieve your most demanding compound coating coloring needs, while making your task a great deal easier.< /p>
