    At Lofty Pursuits we make hard candy using techniques and equipment from the 1800's. Here we are making Blue Berry and Strawberry shortcake candy in a pattern inspired by the American flag for flag day and the 4th of July. This is one of our most complex designs as it does not have an outer wrap. The video covers some fun bits about the history of the American Flag.

      Lofty Pursuits that’s amazing that you know the person that did it! To be clear I don’t dislike it (the FL flag) but I think it pretty blatantly throws those basic rules of flag design out the window

    • Lofty Pursuits
      Lofty Pursuits  4 months ago +2

      I'll see if John Lacastro can fix that. He designed the great seal of Florida or at least the current one. He was my first boss as a graphic artist
