Make'n Mold Candy Clay Rose
It's two gifts in one!
- Time:2 hours
1Project time does not include the time for neither the candy wafers to melt nor for the candy clay to set.
2In a large bowl, melt Dark Chocolate candy wafers according to package instructions.
3Once melted, add in all the corn syrup and stir with rubber spatula. The mixture will look a little seized and will NOT be smooth. Do not over mix.
4Scrape mixture out of bowl and onto a sheet of plastic wrap. Wrap blob completely and allow to rest at room temperature for several hours or overnight. The candy clay will appear to be quite firm this is what you want.
5When the candy clay is firm, use the knife to break off a walnut sized piece of clay. Working it in your hands, create a cone shaped base for the rose to be built on.
6Cut a large piece of candy clay off the block, and knead it in your hands until smooth. Roll into a log, and divide into 9 marble sized pieces.
7One at a time, form the pieces into a patty. With the rolling pin, thin out one side making the edge very thin. Do this to all 9 petals. Use confectioners sugar or cocoa powder to keep the candy clay from sticking.8Begin by wrapping one petal around the candy cone to form the bud. The thin edge of the petal will always be pointed out the thick part will hold each petal to the base.
9Follow that with a row of three petals around the bud, overlap as necessary.
10The last row is the remaining five petals, overlapping to ensure they all fit.11Press the rose to ensure that it holds together. Trim the base with scissors to remove excess candy clay.
