How to make a candy bouquet - Step 6. Make chocolate roses. For this arrangement, I made 12 chocolate roses.
b) Cut rectangular pieces of red cellophane wrap. I used 5” x 7” cellophane squares.
c) Attach Lindt truffles to the stem wire using green floral tape.
Note: This is just one method for attaching candy to sticks. There are different types of candies and respectively there are different methods for attaching them to sticks. In my book "How to Make Candy Bouquets for Fun and Profit" I show different techniques on how to attach candies to sticks.
d) Wrap the wired chocolate with a prepared piece of red cellophane creating a cylinder shape (the height of the cylinder is 5”); you can use a little piece of clear scotch tape to secure the cellophane as a cylinder. Make sure that the cellophane cylinder extends down past the chocolate over the stem. Tie a red curling ribbon around the cellophane at the base of the chocolate, leaving a little bit of cellophane beneath it. The chocolate rose is ready! Repeat these steps to make as many roses as you would like.
e) Insert the roses in the vase spacing them evenly all around.
How to make a candy bouquet - Step 7. Insert the silk Baby’s breath flowers in the bouquet to fill in the bare spaces.

Congratulations on your beautiful candy rose bouquet!
