Watch How These Custom Sugar Candies Get Created Right Before Your Eyes! WOW!
It has been years since I have been inside of a candy shoppe. Not a candy store like they have in the mall (walls of candy + toddlers = NO) but the kind that is run by owners who have been in the business for generations and make all of their candies by hand. It takes a lot of skill and patience to create some of these extraordinary treats, and I feel that it’s an art that has become less and less appreciated. The thought process for most people on a budget is “why spend $4 on a custom candy when you can spend $2 on a bargain bag of store-bought chocolates?” But it’s a nice treat while on vacation and appreciation for this art should be shared with the world!
When these two candy makers first started with their freshly made sugars, I wasn’t quite sure where the design was going. As they worked the candy with expert hands, I thought at times that the candy would become too hard to mold, but time and again I was proven wrong as these experts continued on! I guess the candy is much warmer than it looks. The awesome design held through all the way to the end, and I can’t believe how easy they made this look!
The entire process took about 3 hours, but I’m sure it would have taken me at least an entire day! They really know their way around the candies! Awesome.
