Sweets for the Sweets!

I tried my hand at candy making for the first time in 8 years. In 2001, I made 125 white chocolate wedding cakes with raspberry flavoring in my tiny apartment kitchen that didn't even have a full-sized fridge or oven. I had my technique down pat by the end.

I have had this vintage button candy mold from Amanda for awhile and finally whipped up a batch to include in my Etsy orders.

I kinda forgot I shouldn't overfill the molds. There is a nice ring around the edges of all my "buttons". Eh, they still taste good. So Angela in Chicago, these are on their way (with your key fob, of course).

Oh, those red buttons look gorgeous! I'm so glad you're enjoying your goodies (and don't feel bad, I always overfill the molds too!)
