Project Details

  • Level:advanced
  • Time:2 hours

Project Instructions

  • 1
    Project time does not include the time for neither the candy wafers to melt nor for the candy clay to set.
  • 2
    In a large bowl, melt Dark Chocolate candy wafers according to package instructions.
  • 3
    Once 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.
  • 4
    Scrape 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.
  • 5
    When 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.
  • 6
    Cut 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.
  • 7
    One 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 confectioner’s sugar or cocoa powder to keep the candy clay from sticking.
  • 8
    Begin 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.
  • 9
    Follow that with a row of three petals around the bud, overlap as necessary.
  • 10
    The last row is the remaining five petals, overlapping to ensure they all fit.
  • 11
    Press the rose to ensure that it holds together. Trim the base with scissors to remove excess candy clay.
