Can roses be made of candy clay? If so, is the process the same as making roses with fondant? Any help appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Thanks so much, Jan H. I saw the Wilton ribbon roses instructions, but wasn't sure it would work on the candy clay. Once again, CC to the rescue!

I made candy clay roses for a 4 tier wedding cake in May, it's in my pictures... I think it's my favorite medium for roses!

First off let me say welcome to CC!

Second you did an amazing job on your first cake and it sounds delish to boot!

Third, I was going to post a comment on your cake under your photo but it looks like you do not have the comment option enabled in your profile. If you go into your profile (left side of the screen) and click yes to "Allow other members to post comments on my photos" under the preferences option. If you want to receive CC's newsletter by email you'll want to select that option as well. It will let you know about new and upcoming events on CC.

Great job! icon_smile.gif

I am using the starburst candy and it is sticky can anyone let me know if I can use anything with the candy to keep it from being sticky
Thanks

Wash your hands frequently. Once your hands get sticky, it's hard to mold stuff. Handle it as little as possible, and use two sheets of waxed paper to help smooth it out into a sheet. Mostly handle it as little as possible and once it's rolled or stretched out thin enough, keep it cool. Also, once it's made into a rose, keep it VERY cool, because they'll melt into little blobs pretty quickly if it gets warm!

thanks kansaswolf I made it and you were so right it melts fast but I did it, my hubby told me to put cold water in a bowl and that helped keep my hands clean and cold. I have pics of the rose in my photos I still need lots of practice, I never even made one with fondant maybe I need to practice with that first icon_lol.gif
thanks again
