Candy is Cool
I have become obsessed with candy. Not that I want to eat it, but the whole temperature really matters thing is cool. We made candy apples last week (recipe soon) which were a great success, and I just finished making butter cream icing for a cake for the 10 year old's birthday. There is a great site at Exploratorium.edu which explains the science of candy and the various terms used such as soft-ball, hard ball, hard crack, etc. (where else could so much talk about balls and cracks be considered educational?). There are also some recipes and a video showing how some factory in California makes multicolor lollipops.
