Candy Clay Rose
Light Cocoa Candy Clay
1. Using a 3/4-in. diameter ball of modeling clay, mold a cone that's approximately 1 1/2 in. high.
Next, flatten a 3/8-in. ball of modeling candy into a circular petal that's about 1/4 in. thick on one side and about the diameter of a dime.
Make several petals this size.
2. Wrap first petal around the point of the cone to form a bud. Now press three more petals around the base of the bud.
As you form petals, you gently roll top edges back.
3. Make five more petals using slightly larger balls of modeling clay.
Flatten, then thin edge with finger and cup petals.
Press petal under first rows of petals. Continue adding petals, placing them in between slightly lower than previous row.
For a fuller flower, continue adding petals in this manner.
