    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.

    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?

    I finally got my order of these in and oh my God, I hate how much I crave them now. I want a lifetime supply. Admittedly, they did wear on the roof of my mouth after sucking at a lot of them, but that's likely just from me. I also loved the root beer image candy I got too.

    I'm new to this channel so maybe this has been suggested before. You mentioned there's a lot of wasted candy for this design. Is it possible to put the extra scraps through one of the drop rollers? Maybe mix little drop pieces in with the flowers to be less wasteful?
    I'm so glad I found your channel! 💕

    Hey LP, I'm not sure if you see comments on older videos, but I just wanted to say that I love your videos and have enjoyed treat making from a young age and am in awe of your ability and practice. As well, I'm looking at buying some candy from the online shop and was wondering if you guys had a favorite. I'm leaning towards getting the rare flavor mix just to experiment but if you have a "can't miss" item I'd love to know! Thank you for your time and also your creations adding some sweetness to the world!

    You, Sir, are a genius! I am here from the banana video. Unreal. The amount of talent, skill (not to mention strength!), and creativity it must take to do this. It's artistry at its finest. Poetry reading, and a great sense of humor, topped with CANDY? SUBSCRIBED! I will be shopping online, that's for sure. The rose? Almost too amazing to believe. Thank you for posting these great videos.

    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*
