chocolate candy clay too soft

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Has anyone ever had a problem with their candy clay being too soft and stretchy to make roses? I made the recipe, melted 1 bag of red wafers, added 1/3 cup corn syrup, let it sit overnight, and nothing but problems. I have even tried making them out of Duff red buttercream fondant and it is also to soft. Is there anything I can add to stiffen either product up? Any suggestions would be greatlly appreciated!!! Thanks, Tonya

It gets really hard if you put it in the fridge. I would put it in for 15 minutes or so. Also I find that the red wafers always give me problems. They never melt as smoothly as the other colors. I don't know if that has anything to do with it being too soft but next time add a bit less corn syrup tothem. That should help.
