DIY Candy Flowers


I love crafting with candy.  Candy is so colorful and versatile and best of all tasty!  The folks over at CandyGalaxy asked me to create a craft using candy.  I was up for the challenge.  They have such a huge assortment of candy on their website.  Where was this site when I was getting married and creating a candy buffet?  You can choose candy by color!  I love the candy letters, the possibilities are endless with them.  You can spell our your name, your husbands name, thank you, or they would be great as cake toppers (because its so much easier than fondant).  

I wanted to make something simple with candy that could be used for multiple occasions so I made flowers with lemon gummies and Jelly Belly Raspberries.  These flowers could be used as table decoration, party favors, or cupcake toppers.


 Lemon gummies and Jelly Belly Raspberries

Using a sharp scissor cut one edge of the lemon gummy.

Trim the other end to form a point.

Snip off the point.

Repeat for 4 additional petals.  Place on baking sheet lined with a silicone pad and bake for 3 min at 250 degrees.  This will help them stick together.

Wait for flowers to cool and transfer them onto a mini cupcake liner.

Add a Jelly Belly Raspberry to the center.
