    A new technique for a new effect in our image candies. These Crystal Roses are formed from nothing but hot sugar, and flavors. This is the first in a series of candies using this kind of design.

    I'm new here. I saw the banana and though "wow, that is an incredible talent". The rose, I'm lost for words. This is almost aggressively talented at this point. I mean my god, this would be like Monet finishing a painting before popping a back flip "tada" then walking off nonchalantly. Also I had a look on your website, a little practice and the rose is now looking insanely good.

    Good poem. Nice choice with Dorothy Parker. The reading was OK. I liked the old timey show jazz music much better.

    watching these videos has inspired me, im considering being a candy maker myself now, there are plenty vintage candy shops in my city. old sacramento is 50% candy shops and 50% knick knacks. even if i dont become one, i have a deep respect for the art after being a subscriber for a good while.

    How do you make it taste like a rose?

      A Rose by any other name tastes just like a rose. We work with an extract of rose oil.

    on Monday I received my order and had Rose flavored Candy in it, and it is now mine and my wife and children's favorite flavor it is a delicious mild rose flavor and lasts a long time if you do not bite it lol.

    Would you not be better using the leftover colour to make plain coloured candy?

    You know Greg is a true master when I've watched only about 20-30 videos and, after watching this gorgeous candy video, I think "I bet I could make that. LMAO Yeah, I'm just gonna leave this to Greg.

    We’re hoping the leftovers don’t get literally thrown away. Do you run it through a drop roller? Twist it into a unicorn dropping? What actually happens to it.

    Guys, these are so beautiful in real life, and the taste is very unique. You can't buy anything like this in stores, so I'd you're on the fence, just do it! You won't be disappointed.

    Maybe, since with these types of candies, you can’t use extra candy as stripes, you could make like a form of “junkyard” candy. You could swirl the extra colors together and then just sell them in pieces, sort of like how you sell your unicorn droppings, only smaller

    So... You can't do stripes with is... What about using the end as a fancy unicorn dropping? I'd LOVE to have a large rose candy lump.

    You can take the clear candy/extra and make it into plain clear candy, I’ve always wanted just clear hard candy. Never tried it and never seen it besides in Japan but that’s it!!!!

    As a person that knows way more useless facts that absolutely have zero use to anyone, I'm amazed at how you completely use said.facts to tell a story about what you are doing. It's awesome! Your art is so so beautiful

    So instead of throwing away the parts you didn't need, could you have made something with the leftovers and sold those as well? Or was it too late because it had already cooled?
