Last Saturday, my daughter and I spent some time at Made In Candy at SM Megamall. We were there for a candy-making session to celebrate our birthdays! This is MIC’s biggest branch.
Made In Candy candies are made fresh on site all day everyday. Whenever they’re making candy, a crowd would gather outside because it’s quite fun and interesting to watch. They also offer free samples after the session.
Everything that was needed to make candy was laid out neatly on the hot table. It’s hot so the candy is malleable enough to form and shape. If you put the candy on a cool surface it will harden almost immediately.
These are the flavors and colors that were to be added to the boiled sugar which serves as the base.
We were asked to wear protective gloves since we would be handling candy on the hot table.
The design we were going to make was this clover.
Most of the time was spent kneading candy.
My daughter had a go at it too!
It was fun getting to experience the entire making candy process!
The clover design may look simple but OMG a lot of hard meticulous work is involved in making it. You make a big tube of candy and then roll and stretch to the small size you see at the store.
Pull, stretch, and cut!
This is how you cut them down to size, you use a cleaver to do it! You hold it at a certain angle and simply tap the cleaver to cut the now hard candy.
Tadaa! This is the finished product! It’s soursop (guyabano) flavored.
You can make them big or small or twist them into lollipops.
Thank you Made In Candy! We had a blast!
Just check out that selection! Each design has a different flavor.
We got to take home all this wonderful candy! 😀
