    What are you doing with the piece you cut at 4:40?

    I wonder... Does any candy actually use one of the mistakes you mention as part of the recipe? Like a sticky candy that has water left over from the dye or maybe a specific taste from adding citric acid to a candy too early?
    I’d imagine there’s a reason I haven’t seen anything like that, but I’m still curious.

    So when you cut the red from the (at the time) clear, you missed a bit. But you didn't go back to get it out, and just left it in. Why didn't you take the bit of red out? Would it not have discolored the white some?

  • Fluffymiyster

    I've noticed that watching these make me not want to rub my face while I see them handling the candy, as though I subconsciously begin to feel a little bit like I'm handling it, lol. I have this tiny moment of hesitation before I rub an eye or something because I'm worried I'll contaminate the food...though I'm not near any food!

    • Lofty Pursuits

      +Fluffymiyster it happens for real when you make the candy. You just can't do it.

    millions of thoughts flew through my mind whenever I saw the title if this video. One of them being a memory of when I was 4. My father had bought me a heart shaped lollipop and it tasted like a dream because this was the first lollipop I ate. My father passed away November 15, 2015 when I was 9. I am 11 now and I find your videos more amusing than sculpting my own clay creations, and I hope that in the future I can someday do this.
    I also have a suggestion
    candy shaped like sunny side up egg :)

    You add color and then stir to boil out the water in the food coloring. Have you ever just used powdered food coloring? I imagine that must pose its own unique set of problems, though.

    • Lofty Pursuits
      Lofty Pursuits  10 months ago

      +A.M. some candy makers useless. And it works for a lot of application but I find it does not make for a solid color but a color that is grainy. It doesn't look the way I want to. There's nothing wrong particular with it. I often use gel colors also which have less water in them but behave weird sometimes. I Tim not to use them in the videos because I just don't like the look of a plastic squeeze bottle used for Victorian candy making. It's all about Aesthetics
