A Gift for Dad

 

Last week my son asked me to help him to create a candy bouquet Father’s Day gift for his dad. Excellent idea! I thought. My first idea was to do a black and white themed bouquet.  I selected a simple glass bottle to use as a vase. I stuffed it with black shredded paper, next I arranged three black and white swirl lollipops in the vase and I finished the arrangement with an over sized white bow.

Rock Candy

Some people call it rock sugar, some call it sugar swizzle sticks, and others call it crystallized sugar. Here at the Bulk Candy Store, we call it Rock Candy.  It is made by a process called crystallization. The crystals are formed by allowing a supersaturated solution of sugar and water to crystallize onto a surface suitable for a process called crystal nucleation, such as a string or stick.  The process takes about 6 to 7 days to produce the crystals.

The Leap Year Question

Gummy Frogs

“If a person is born on February 29th, can they only celebrate their birthday every 4 years?” This was a question from my niece as we put together the Leap Year goodie bags they will be using in their pre K. class as a teaching aid. “Great question, I guess they could celebrate on February 28th or March 1st…” I don’t think she heard my response; she was too busy eating concentrating on our project.
