Prepare candy clay one day in advance. Prepare candy clay following recipe directions. Prepare one batch using red Candy Melts candy and half a batch using green Candy Melts candy. Reserve melted green candy.
Make brownie pops. Prepare batter following recipe directions. Bake and cool brownies. Cool. Dip cookie sticks into melted green candy and insert into pops. Chill until set 3 to 5 minutes.
Create roses. Use fondant roller with pink guide rings to roll out 2 1/2 oz. red candy clay per treat 1/16 in. thick. Use smallest round (2 1/4 in.) cutter from set to cut seven circles per treat. Use large ball tool from set and purple foam to soften petal edges.
Use melted candy to attach two center petals in interlocking pattern. Arrange five additional petals with petals overlapping each other and use melted candy to attach. Fold petals back slightly to give illusion of movement.
Add leaves. Use fondant roller with pink guide rings to roll out 3/4 in. ball of green candy 1/16 in. thick. Use small leaf Cut-Out to cut three leaves, reversing the cutter for one of them. Use melted candy to attach leaves to the base of rose. Chill until set 5 minutes.

I am going to write two reviews because I want to write as I go along. Tonight I made the "modeling clay." It was easy to make and I am excited to see the results tomorrow. I also purchased pink and yellow to make different color roses. I am going to make the flower basket cake for my girlfriend's mom on her birthday. I may use these flowers as the boquet instead of other flowers. I may also use some silk flowers to cover the rest of the cake for ease. We will see. I using a lemon cake recipe for the pops as well. I hope it holds up with everything :)
So far the recipe is easy to get set up to make the petals.
