Candy Art

CandyThis man creates intricate candy designs that are edible.

A practiced Chinese gentleman will produce a board stuffed with little paintings with a spinning pointer at its centre, and ask a child to spin it. The pointer will land at an animal or object. The gentleman will then proceed to take a ladle of special syrup and whizz it over a smooth marble slab, flattening the sticky things he draws with a special metal tool when needed, where it quickly hardens into a detailed edible sugar dragon! Or a phoenix, or a bicycle, or anything! When the model's finished, he sticks it to a stick, and gives it to the child, who will parade it around for a while, and then quickly gobble it all up. It's fantastic!

Watch the video which shows how these candies are created after the jump.
