I'm not quite sure what to call this creation; spiral candy seems pretty descriptive. Basically, I was looking for an alternative to hard candy that will eventually become sticky when used to decorate gingerbread houses or cookies; royal icing will stay rock hard. You'll need stiff consistency royal icing in any colors you like, parchment paper squares, a flower nail, a glue stick, a Styrofoam block to rest the nail in, and a dusting pouch filled with a 50/50 mix of powdered sugar and cornstarch. You can use tips in any size depending on how large you want your "candies" to be (I used #10 and #3). Start by sticking a parchment square to the flower nail with a dab from the glue stick.
