I’ve been seeing candy inspiration everywhere lately, however my favorite source so far has been Amy Atlas’ site on event planning. Here is just a glimpse of one of her signatures; the candy buffet.
Her images moved me to visit my local candy store, where I found some gumballs and fun swirly lollipops.
These in turn inspired me try my hand at some lollipop sugar cookies…
And of course, there’s the disco dust again.
I didn’t get to these cookies below yet, but wanted to mention that I’ve got them next on my lollipop wish list:
They’re from Elisa Strauss’ book Confetti Cakes For Kids.
Cakes are still very new to me, but I’m thinking this one (above) from Planet Cake will be one of the first on my ‘to try’ list.
Anyways, why am I mentioning all this?
I was inpired by all this candy fun to do a giveaway.
