During a batch of Apple Image Candy I was showing off how we create white candy by pulling thousands of tiny air bubbles into the sugar. I got a little flashy and was pulling the candy while tossing it over my head.
Suddenly, and much to the mirth of everyone else in the store, the inevitable happened, and I chucked about 2lbs of sugar over my shoulder and onto the floor.
Luckily, I was able to catch most of the white candy in mid-air, and the batch was (mostly) saved. I hope you enjoy the photographic documentation.

Uri Gottschalk and Mayowa Ogunjobi are making working on a delicious batch of Grapefruit candy for the Citrus Mix. I've been working with them for months and they're finally making candy on their own. I feel like a proud mother duck as my little ducklings get to work. :)

Wes did not make this cake, but he did make the roller coaster track for it out of pulled sugar. I think the car should be upside-down in the loop.

Victorian Candy Equipment Kickstarter
Thursday, January 5, 2012 - 23:04
We have started a Kickstarter campaign to raise funds to rescue some vintage candy making equipment from a candy store founded in the 1840's in Cincinnati.
A Kickstarter campaign is an all or nothing campaign to let the public support interesting projects in an all or nothing fundraising approach. If we don't hit our goal, we get nothing and the backers do not get charged. There are thank yous you can get for supporting this project, so click on the link, watch our video, and if you feel it is worth it, support Lofty Pursuits getting this bit of candy history.
P.S. Please spread the word.
