Sweet little gift 2 - candy roses


Candy roses by Tunde Dugantsi

Let me show you my other "sweet little gift" project created for my little girls' dance recital:

I was in Hobby Lobby, looking for some ideas and my husband spotted this mold. (He never came to Hobby Lobby with me before and I doubt it will happen again - but there he was, finding this rose mold for me.) I've never used this white mold for candy melt before, but the shape was perfect so I decided to give it a try.

I put the sticks in, added the candy melt and let it cool down in the fridge.

I have to tell you, the surface of this mold is not as smooth as the clear one so I had a hard time to take my roses out. Some calyxes broke off, but I was able to glue them back with a little candy melt.

I just wanted a little highlight to make them prettier, so I mixed some Green Shine and Pink Shine TruColor airbrush colors and used them to highlight parts of the roses.

They make such a nice little bouquet, don't you think?
