Candy Clay Roses
Candy Clay Roses add a spectacular touch to your cakes and cupcakes. Below is the recipe for making the clay and a link for step by step instructions.
1 package (14 oz.) candy melts( Wilton or other brand), White, chocolate or colored
1/3 cup light corn syrup
Melt Candy Melts following package directions. Add corn syrup and stir to blend. Turn out mixture onto waxed paper and let set at room temperature to dry. Wrap well and store at room temperature until needed. Candy Clay handles best if hardened overnight.
To Tint: Candy Clay made with white candy melts may be tinted further using Wilton Candy Colors or Icing Colors. Knead in color until well blended.
To Store: Prepared Candy Clay will last for several weeks at room temperature in a well-sealed container.
