I’ve written in the past about Project Runway’s Candy Couture challenge to make a dress out of candy. Students of TheFrench Pastry School of Kennedy-King College and Chicago junior high and high school students from After School Matters recently did something similar, creating a fun assortment of dresses and accessories out of Jelly Belly candies.
The one below is my favorite – and made by high schoolers! You can check them all out on their Pinterest board.
The funky stank of camembert, on the other hand, does not sound like a natural fit for pairing with chocolate. But The Creative Pot thought they’d be a good match and posted her recipe for making dark chocolate camembert truffles. I sort of want to try them but am sort of scared. H/t Knile.
I’m not expecting anything from my boyfriend because he’s noticed that “the world already sends [me] enough free candy.” I will, however, be dragging him to grocery stores tomorrow to pick through the Valentine’s Day sales candy.
I just saw Wreck It Ralph last weekend (loved it, by the way!) and loved the idea of the Sugar Rush game. If you haven’t seen the movie, Sugar Rush is like Mario Kart, but set in a crazy world made of candy. The cars are made of cake and covered in frosting and zoom around on hard candy wheels.
The Sugar Rush race cars reminded me of this real-life candy bike (h/t Knile). Well, the bike is real-life; I think the candy isn’t real. Still, it looks delicious and would fit right into the Sugar Rush world.
