I'm hoping to use candy clay to make some small flowers for a cake and cupcakes. The only concern I have is that it is HOT here in Georgia right now. I've never used it before, so I don't know how it will stand up in this heat. Any thoughts?

How do candy melts hold up in your heat? Candy clay is candy melts + corn syrup. So if your candy melts don't hold up in the heat, your candy clay won't.

Try mixing it with gumpaste.

3 parts candy clay to 1 part gumpaste, so that they hold their shape better and don't bend and melt.

I mix my candy clay 50/50 with mmf for flowers and they hold up for me just fine, but I'm up in Montana for I have no clue how they would last with your heat + humidity. icon_smile.gif
