At least I could do something right today

I made Raspberry flavoured candy just a couple minutes ago. They turned out quite well.

The stuff I had time to put knife marks in are on the right, the stuff I had to break by hand are on the left.

Also here are the apple candies I did at work yesterday.

Very cool gobo!!!!!! You've got quite a passion for candy making. What else do have your sites set on as far as candy making? What's something you really want to try, but, haven't yet?

Gobo.... can you make old fashioned ribbon candy? (does anyone else remember this?)

I can't seem to find it anymore.

We would have it at Christmas, and not only was it so beautiful to look at, (there are glass/crystalSmiths who fashion objects d'art to resemble these candies...) I recall it being so yummy... they didn't seem to be so sugar-y, but very flavorful.

Just curious.... and keep up your good work! It looks marvelous!

Funny you should mention ribbon candy. That's exactly what I had in mind when I asked gobo if he had other candies in his sites.

I've been wanting to make bubblegum for a while now, but I still haven't found gum base. I called some stores yesterday, and none of them have it. So I may have to order gum base online soon.

I'd have to see if I can dig a recipe up. That would be pretty cool. I'll let you know.

Oh wow, this should be fun. I'll see what I can do... and when I can do it.
