This candy decoration is an adorable way to add a sugary touch to any cookie tray or cake. Very easy to do – just takes a little practice.

Flatten gumdrops with a rolling pin on surface or sheet of waxed paper sprinkled with sugar. Roll each piece until very thin (about 1/16-inch thick), turning frequently to coat with sugar. Holding a flattened gumdrop at the center, overlap edges slightly to give a petal effect, pressing the piece together at base to resemble a rose bud. For an open blossom, bend gumdrop petals outward from the center. Insert a small piece of gumdrop in the center with a wooden pick, if desired. Use a wooden pick to attach flowers to a cake if necessary.
