Candy clay tastes wonderful however if you have hot hands it will litterally melt in your hands. It hardens up nicely once you are done with it though. I make it to "play" with but my son (almost 9) can't do much with it because he has hot hands. I mix it with a bit of fondant to help him out.
Can I stick my hands in ice water or the freezer ?
That was the problem that I had when I was doing the marzipan animals a few years ago. The marzipan didn't hold up nearly as well as fondant, and melted much easier.
As far as working with it, how do they compare? I don't so much care about the taste, because I'm going to make them ahead of time anyway, so I doubt they'll be tasty. Thanks!
