Several days in advance, make Candy Clay rose. Start with the base and mold a cone that's approximately 1 1/2 in. high from a 3/4 in. diameter ball of modeling candy. 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. Wrap first petal around the point of the cone to form a bud. Now press three more petals around the base of the bud. Gently pinch edges of petals. Make five more petals using slightly larger balls of modeling clay. Flatten, then thin edge with finger and cup petals. Continue adding petals, placing them in between and slightly lower than previous row. For a fuller flower, continue adding petals in this manner.
