I had a bunch of yellow candy melts left over from doing the Easter chicks. I also had a whole container of pastel colored candy corn that I never used, so I took a cue from Bakerella and made some Mother’s Day Flowers. Hers came out so much nicer, though.
I’ve been having a tough time with the Wilton brand of candy melts. I use a little ceramic cup and melt the candy melts in the microwave. I just can’t seem to get it liquidy (is that even a word?!) enough that it will drip from the lollipop stick. It usually just clumps. I’m going to have to experiment with some other brands. I’ve even tried putting a little vegetable/canola oil in it, but that doesn’t seem to help much at all. Anyone out there have any suggestions?
In the middle of the flowers, I used chocolate covered sunflower seeds that I found at Trader Joe’s. The candy corn I found during the Easter holiday at Michael’s.
