I can’t think of anything cuter than a candy bracelet, and this Valentine’s you can make your own! We opted to stick with a traditional Valentine’s Day color palette, but you could really use any colors you like. These could also be made with round or square cutters instead of hearts, so they need not be only for Valentine’s Day.
Here’s what you’ll need:
Small rolling pin
Small heart cutter (I’ve had this Ateco aspic set for at least 20 years and use it all the time)
With small acrylic rolling pin, roll fondant thicker than you might normally roll, about 1/8″
Begin cutting hearts using small heart cutter. To estimate the number of hearts you’ll need, first measure the recipient’s wrist with a tape measure. Then multiply the wrist size (in inches) by 8 (since each heart will be about 1/8″ thick).
Next, use the small icing tip to cut a hole in the top left corner of each heart, leaving enough space around the hole so the fondant will not break.
Continue until you have as many hearts as you need. Allow hearts to dry, at least overnight.
