How to make Candy Flowers

  1. Mix a batch of Candy Clay, I like using White Candy Melts, then just dividing it and adding whatever color I want.
  2. Roll out clay to about 1/8 inch thick, cut with flower cookie cutter
  3. Lay in forming cup and make indents to give flowers depth. We used an orange peeler and it worked great.
  4. Fit decorator bag with #3 Tip and add white frosting {it won’t take much}
  5. Pipe on 4 dots of frosting and using a toothpick, add the sprinkle {Tip: if you stick the toothpick in a little frosting, it picks up the sprinkle easier}
  6. Remove flower from forming cup and lay aside {you can easily re-form the flower with your hands if you need to}

After the flowers are done, now it’s time to start on the cupcakes. I baked Red Velvet Cake in these fun, colorful cups. Wilton makes a variety of them, they are actually called Nut Cups. After the cupcakes are cool, it’s time to decorate.
