    Important question: How do you keep the pots you cook sugar in from getting all crusty? Is it just a constant rotation of heating sugar in it so you don't even need to wash it? Or do you just soak it in something to get all the sugar to crust off? Thanks.

    Don't we have machines to do this stuff by now? It's an easy process and very few ingredients. It looks tedious making it by hand.

    who is the dummy touching the candy with out a heat glove hahaha Also why don't they shove the stick in while it's in the actual form so it doesn't mishape it as much

      Clearly you have a lot of experience in candy making with your insults. The candy is about 120 at that point in the process. Gloves are not needed once you build heat tolerance If it were hotter than that igneous go flat under its own weight. It will actually distort more of you push it in when it's in the form.

  • Lord Of Sandvich
    Lord Of Sandvich 6 months ago

    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.

    "Scalding hot" is an understatement. Anyone who has touched melted sugar will attest to that. Basically it's like touching lava.

      +Jack D yes you can. 2 things happen. The cabdy gets large air bubbles in it, and the candy cools off too much.

  • SuperHappyNotMerry

    That's such a gorgeous pearly white. It almost looks like ribbons when you're stretching it on the hook. Beautiful

      In most videos, he mentions that they sell the end pieces as "unicorn droppings" but only in-person at their store (you can buy most of their candy at their online store, but _not_ unicorn droppings). It's also been mentioned that people will use the unicorn droppings in cooking projects; I'm not sure how that works, but I thought it was an interesting use of the end pieces.
      p.s. Since you mentioned you're not good at spelling, here's a corrected version of your original post, "You know the top of it, where you cut it off, it can be a giant sucker not a lolly pop. It might be cool or just dumb. Sorry, I am not good at spelling." A couple of your mistakes were actually kinda humorous, specifically a "mite" is a type of bug, as is a "bee", but the pronunciation of each is consistent with the words you clearly meant, "might" and "be", respectively.

    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?

    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!

      +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  Year 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
