    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.

    i’ve been watching your videos and am curious about one thing: uncoloured sugar appears amber when you’re working with them, but why do they cool and end up clear, with no amber hue at all? is there a technique you use to cancel the amber colour out, or does it naturally cool to be transparent?

    One Perfect Rose is my favorite poem! So exciting that other people know it. It rings true in my life because my name is Rose. People give me roses all the time, and always say "a rose for a Rose" it gets tiresome. One Perfect Rose describes it perfectly! *grin*

      Exactly. It's making murhinni. But it's so much easier, it's almost like cheating! Makes me want to give him some pointers, but gaffers have to have their secrets! It would be cool to learn some of his, too. Combining the two techniques could yield the most ridiculous results.

    I just got my order. This is delightful! And exquisitely beautiful. It tastes like a fresh sweet plant, almost like the after taste of a snap pea, with the slightest echo of rose essence. It’s amazingly delightful! I’m trying to eat it but can’t resist looking at it over and over. What a work of art!!

    I bought a bag of the crystal rose, crisp apple and Watermelon last month. When they arrived the designs were great but all the candy tasted the same. They all just tasted like sugar. My family and I were disappointed that the candy had NO flavor besides sweet/ sugar. Are the candies supposed to taste like apple, watermelon and rose? I would love to order more but the flavor was not unique but rather boring.

    Many times I want to visit shops such as yours but I can instantly tell when cinnamon even in a bottle is in the room I’m allergic highly allergic and even if he rolled out something with cinnamon flavor on the table took it off and then rolled something out on the table that I bought my throat instantly close and my Epi pen is like $500 now they were $50 and I’d take more chances. When I was younger Benadryl used to stop the throat from closing but I would get like a heavy cold flu type thing for a week or two and lose my voice so I learned to detect cinnamon with my nose.

    I just ordered $36 worth or macrons aka 12 of them. And my favorite favorite is Rose and lychee. I also love Earl gray tea and lavender, Chamomile and hibiscus 🌺.

    with the extra candy, you could just make swirl designs or something. it's a shame to make that go to waste when you could probably turn them into something abstract. this is obviously an art, and not all art is planned, so just squish some extra colors together and see what you get.

    From Georgia here, lol, perhaps you should check the history of your own ‘Native’ State symbols before you chastise Georgia for our use of the Cherokee Rose. First of all if you have a reddish pink rose in your yard, it is not a Cherokee Rose, as they are always Snow White. Cherokee Roses have been in Georgia since before 1700, and the primary reason it was named State flower was due to the Cherokee and THEIR symbolism with the rose, describing each petal as a tear that fell upon the Trail of Tears.

    3:16. Why not just sell the scrap as *(insert flavor) scrap rocks*, While not as visual appealing it should still taste good

      “Unicorn droppings” are presumably a lot cheaper than the normal sweets, so a larger percentage of “droppings” does mean that they have to raise the price a bit.

    • Pickle V
      Pickle V Month ago

      Nillie I don’t recall him mentioning it this video and so they said they raise the price of the candy to make up for the incomplete ones yet if they still sell those, there shouldn’t be a need to raise to price. It’s just greed
