  1. Melt 2 cups (one 12-ounce bag) each red and blue candy melts in separate bowls. Pour each color onto a parchment-lined baking sheet and spread evenly with an offset spatula. Refrigerate until set, about 20 minutes.
  2. Break the red and blue candy into small irregular pieces. 
  3. Arrange the candy on a vanilla-frosted cake, gently pressing the pieces into the frosting.

Cook’s Note

To melt the candy melts, put them in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave at 50-percent power in 30-second intervals, stirring, until smooth. (For a thinner mixture, melt with a little coconut oil.)
