    So how much does a batch of candy like this for, say, a wedding cost?

    I wish I'd know of you guys when I got married in 2015. I would have considered custom candy

    you should make candy canes... with the image of a candy cane on the inside.

    no one would see it, you say? I beg to differ! I break off bits of the candy cane as i eat it, cause i don't like having to hold the thing or have it hanging from my mouth while I suck on it! It would make for an awesome surprise with candy canes! (it does kind of ruin the whole, stuffing the trim into the butt of the candy roll thing, but it would totally be worth it!)

    I only just realised. Your image candy is just rock cut into bite size pieces... with more interesting designs.

      Yup. I don't use cut rock as a term as it was slang in NYC for a particular drug.

    As has been said Calla Lilly seems to have collected many meaning over the years: beauty, rebirth, holiness, faithful... Also, it's a great symbol for a wedding; since it also symbolizes the joy of marriage. But one of my favorites is its use at Easter to represent Jesus’ Resurrection; somehow tying all these meanings together.

  • knm_plans
    knm_plans 8 months ago

    @loftypursuits Have you ever considered practicing with clay when youre attempting a complicated design? It would be smaller obviously, but this design within a cane is not new nor limited to candy making. Polymer clay is a popular medium for this technique so there’s lots of videos and inspiration out there!

    • knm_plans
      knm_plans 7 months ago

      Oh I understand there are drastic differences in regards to overall stability! Obviously clay won't go flat on you as you work on it (unless you're someplace crazy hot!). But my comment was more in suggestion to just playing with the shapes so you can decide what you think looks best. With something like clay it's easier as you can really sit with it and think, you're not forced to work on the fly and hope the vision in your head comes to fruition. You can kind of get an idea for how many petals to aim for, how many colors could be included before it's too busy, etc. It's like med students practicing on dummies before they're set loose on patients! It's never the same but the dry run still helps, lol.

    • Lofty Pursuits

      Clay is very different. This is a non-Newtonian fluid. It really does not translate what you can do.

    You're getting much better at the music/narration volume balance - not too loud, not too soft. 👍🏻 much less distracting from the actual candy-making.
    Also LOVE the "mapping" shown for the designs as you work that you've been adding!

  • Michael Garofalo
    Michael Garofalo Year ago

    I find myself watching these videos over and over and over again it's just relaxing. The only thing I'm missing is the candy itself I seem to have run out I need to buy more. I was wondering Greg if you've ever tried to put a face in the candy ? On various videos and on the website there is a portrait of you near the cooling table and I was just curious if it's possible to put your portrait in the candy 🍭

    • Lofty Pursuits
      Lofty Pursuits  Year ago +1

      +Mike Garofalo I've wondered that myself. I think I could put a caricature in candy but I'm not sure how good it would be. I thought I could do more of an impressionist piece but it would take a little planning no make that a lot of planning

  • Christi Caballero

    Hi guys love your videos! just an FYI in case you werent aware if you take a hammer and hit the end of the hook a few times and then right before you remove the pulled candy, there wont be any left stuck on the hook when you remove it.

    • Christi Caballero
      Christi Caballero Year ago

      understandable. thanks for replying. i watch your videos alot and one day I am going to have to come watch you make it. Im in NC so it wouldnt be too far of a drive. do yow have a scheduled day that you make batches?

    • Lofty Pursuits
      Lofty Pursuits  Year ago +1

      You did not, but I get this suggestion once a week and I find frustrating that this happens. I've gotten a few good suggestions from fans over the years, like the rolling pin I now use, but the assumption that I don't look at candy videos too surprises me.

    • Christi Caballero
      Christi Caballero Year ago

      Ok, thats interesting. I just saw it and thought it may help. Sorry if i offended you that was not my intention. I love your videos, they're very interesting and sort of calming for me.

    • Lofty Pursuits
      Lofty Pursuits  Year ago

      +Christi Caballero And then you integrate into the can these bits that can cause crystallization of your whole batch of candy. You save about a dime's worth of candy to create an inferior candy that will have a shorter shelf life. Why would I want to do this? The real reason they do this is their hook is attached to the wall and can't come off. They have no way to clean it. Out hook comes off the wall we put it in a pot of boiling water which cleans it and sanitize is it. They have no good way to sanitize their hook. I keep on wondering why people wanted me to copy a less sanitary technique that will also lead to producing some interior candy. All for saving a half dozen pieces of candy.

    Have you ever considered selling your castoffs? Do you sell them? Rolling any extra blobs into a messy tube and chipping that into a discount bin of random-looking and tasting candies, or selling the giant fist-sized lump that you pull off to start rolling the tubes, either whole or in chunks?
