I have seen people on here with pictures that they have posted with things made of candy clay. I had no idea what it was and then I came across the recipe for it in one of my Wilton books.

What on earth do you do with it? Make figurines? I would like to try making some, but I don't know what you do with it.

TIA for your suggestions!

Anything you do with fondant, you can do with candy clay.

Roses, covering a cake, bows, figures, anything. The sky is the limit. icon_biggrin.gif

I much prefer candy clay over fondant or gumpaste when it comes to flowers and figures. To me it's easier to work with. You can look in my pics and see some of the flowers that I made with it. It works great.

Good luck and have fun with it.

I like it for modeling and sometimes cover whole cakes with it.

I also especially like it for making candy roses with. I use the mini Tootsie Pops as the centers and use the candy clay to make the petals right on the pops.

I use it for lots of things:

There's a few more cakes in my gallery that I used the clay on, I love the stuff!

You can also use candy clay in the bottom of a container when making cookie or lollipop bouquets. It works in place of storyfoam. It add weight to the container if it is a light one, and if you decide you want to move your stick over just a little you just press in the existing hole and make another.

is candy clay the same thing as modeling chocolate?
