The petal technique was found in the book "cupcakes, cookies & pie, oh my!" by Richardson and Tack.

Candy melting wafers come in all sorts of different colours but all taste about the same, a bit like white chocolate (except for the chocolate coloured ones that taste like artificial chocolate).
They can be purchased at the Bulk Barn if you live in Ontario or other provinces in Canada (see their website for store finder).
They can also be found at certain craft stores and at stores like Walmart in certain areas.
They can also be purchased online.
Examples:

They cost about $6 a pound here in Canada at he Bulk Barn.
I melt mine at 50% power in the microwave and will sometimes add a bit of shortening to the mixture to thin it out.
You can dye white chocolate and white candy melts but you must use oil based colours (available in certain craft store and online)
Like here: http://www.globalsugarart.com/cat.php...
Leftover candy melts can be reused, just let them harden and melt them again. I let mine harden in a plastic bag in a thin layer, then just break of the pieces from the plastic and put it into a container.


****WINNERS OF THE 100TH CUPCAKE GIVEAWAY****
There were over 1100 entries!!! Amazing :)
This is the first time that I try using the email method for a contest entry. It worked very well and was very easy to organize and pick the winners, however, I forgot to ask people for their youtube usernames so that I could announce them publicly!
I have sent emails to the five winners asking for their usernames and as soon as get them will be able to share them with you all (if they say it is okay of course).

Thank you to all of you who have entered !!
