- Colour Mill Lime Color
- Clear Course Sugar

1. Melt bright white candy coating in the microwave-- 30 second intervals work best. Transfer
this melted coating to a tipless bag.
2. Fill the center portion of the margarita mold with
something to weigh the mold down. With the
melted coating in the tipless bag, fill the other 2
portions of the mold.
3. Tap to remove any air bubbles & freeze for 15
4. In the meantime, make the margarita mousse.
5. Place the heavy cream, powdered sugar & margarita extract in a large mixing bowl. Whip until
you reach medium-stiff peaks.
6. Take approximately 1.5 cups of this whipped
topping & transfer to a clean large bowl.
7. Add approximately 3/4 cup of the key lime pastry filling & fold it in. Add coloring if desired.
8. If the mixture seems too thick, add more of the
margarita whipped cream. Place the bowl into
9. Once the margarita mold has been in the freezer for 15 minutes, remove the two pieces of
coating by inverting the mold.
10. Melt more white coating in the microwave for the glass portion of the mold.
11. Once melted, add lime colour mill color & stir.
12. Pour this colored coating into the middle portion of the mold & swirl around to coat all parts.
13. Pour out all excess coating & clean up the edges using an angled spatula.
14. Let the mold sit at room temperature until the coating has set up-- about 10 minutes.
15. After 10 minutes, re-melt some of the colored coating so a second layer can be added.
16. Pour the melted coating on top of the previous layer & swirl to evenly coat. Again, pour out
any excess onto parchment paper & clean up the edges using an angled spatula. Freeze for 10-
17. In the meantime, heat a plate in the microwave. Heat the inside portions of each of the stem
pieces in order to stick them together. Use a paring knife to clean up the edges if needed.
18. After 10-15 minutes, remove the mold from the freezer. Use the same heated plate to smooth
the edge of the glass.
19. Use a paint brush to apply clear piping gel all around the rim of the glass. Once the entire rim
has been coated, dip into clear coarse sugar & add some green diamond dust.
20. Melt down a small amount of white coating in a tipless bag in the microwave-- 20 second intervals work best.
21. Pipe a small amount of this coating on top of the stem piece of the glass to attach the cup portion. Let this set at room temperature for 5 minutes to allow the coating to set up.
22. With your extra coating in the tipless bag, partially fill 2 cavities of a citrus slice mold. We only
filled them up partially to look proportional with our glass. Place the filled mold into the freezer for 10 minutes,
23. After 10 minutes, remove the citrus slices from the mold and use a heated plate to adhere the
2 pieces together. Use sour apple luster dust and a dry brush to add some color to the inside
portion of the lime wedge.
24. In a paint tray, mix together green, white & yellow poppy paint until you reach the color of the
outside of a lime. Paint the rind portion of your chocolate piece, cleaning your brush with highgrain alcohol once you are finished.
25. Transfer your margarita mousse to a pastry bag & pipe into your chocolate margarita glass.
26. Garnish with your chocolate lime wedge
