With spectacular reception of our previous how to make traditional hard candy video, we decided to return to Candy Labs for Round 2. An ever more disappearing art, these specialty candies are made by hand. Our video documents a roughly 3 hour process of one of their popular original designs, and is edited into a 20 minute in-depth episode about a day in the life of a candy maker and the techniques involved in making artisan candy.
Follow Lin and Mei as they make an even more complex design: a Panda. Using old fashion techniques, they transform a giant mass of sugar into tiny sweets – it’s tempting to say you may even need a microscope to see the little face, or at least really good glasses. These candies are made on-site at their store, hidden in a corner of downtown Montreal.
