Step 2

The next day, knead clay until smooth, then roll out on work surface dusted with confectioners' sugar. Roll clay thin and use perimeter cutter to cut 25 circles. Press top half edge of circle with finger to soften and thin edge. Shape into petal by pinching bottom to taper end. Dust ball pan with cornstarch and set petals in pan to dry.

For center area of flower, lay 3 petals together, overlapping ends (couple will stand inside). Shape and let dry.

Step 4

Make 6 full-bloom (7-petal) candy clay roses and 12 medium-bloom (5-petal) candy clay roses. Let dry on board covered with waxed paper.

The bead shape makes impressive borders outlines and accents on letters and designs; also a cute trim on clothing and gingerbread houses. The basis for making piped hearts and figure piping.

The random lacy design of this free-form technique depends on the continuous curving lines that do not overlap or touch. Can be used in a small design area or on an entire cake surface. Good for wedding, anniversary and other formal event cakes, but lends itself to more casual themes, as well.

Love Triumphant Cake is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from We did this for our Tiering Tall Cakes Class, in order to learn how to make and use candy clay. Making the big candy clay flower that went on top was a challenge, but I am pleased with how it came out. I added white pearl dust, which gave it a very interesting and lovely shimmer. Making the candy leaves using lemon leaves was an especially fun and exciting experience for me! This cake decorating project took me lots of advance preparation time, but it was well worth it and very rewarding! Candy clay looks and tastes great! I hope to incorporate the decorating concepts from this cake project on some of my own future cake decorating projects.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I made this cake for my sister's engagement party. They absolutely loved it!!! I made the yellow darker with ivory petals and roses. I did a deeper yellow on accident but I think the contrast between the yellow and the ivory cornelli lace made it exquisite!
