I was so excited to make my own candy! But safety first – gloves (there are two sets – one surgical and one which can withstand heat). I was also briefed and reminded of the “hot and warm” area and surfaces of the Made in Candy kitchen laboratory.
This is not how you do the candies though. 😉 But, that’s just me being me. When it comes to cooking and serious matters, I can be really serious. Check out the next picture!
The design that was selected by the Made in Candy team is lips! They prepared a diagram for me but I bet that their candy crew can do it without a guide.
To simplify the process of making a candy, I would say there are 3 parts in making a candy. First, mixing colors and kneading flavors; second, assembling and designing; third, cutting. There are also 3 work tables inside Made in Candy and they are all designed to keep the temperature of the hard candy.
It felt like first day of work for me (I remember my barista days!) but the Made in Candy team is so helpful, knowledgable and fun to work with – every step of the process made me more confident (even if I am partly scared of working with knives and I slightly burnt my thigh from the hot table). Haha. I know that’s part of the work!
Here’s the half part of the candy – with “full” lips aiming at you!
I was amazed at how the design was drafted and molded in the hard candy! It takes more than creativity to put a design into a roll of hard candy combining colors, shapes and curves. Making a symmetrical design can be easy, but how about company logo? or names? Hats off to the hard-working and creative team of Made in Candy!
We need to cut the candies evenly but each candy needs to be round and even – so it won’t feel sharp in the tongue (especially for the kids).
Look at the candies that I made! Woot!
And to all the people who patiently watched me and my little show.. they got a treat! Free taste of my candy masterpiece!
While I was busying entertaining our audience, Chef Paul created some awesome masterpieces! I got a Rose and a Name Plate 🙂 It seriously felt like my debut all over again. Haha

I also tried my hands at making lollipop but I guess, I need more practice
(especially in inserting the stick ;))
Anyway, it was truly a fun experience! I got to appreciate every single bit of candy from Made in Candy. Each bottle or pack is truly a labor of love.
Look at this bottle filled with rock candies with my name on it!
