Making It With Allie - Paper Candy!

Yay! It's party time again!
I know that's what you were waiting for!
Here is my submission to the party:

Remember when you were little and you liked Paper Candy Buttons?
Peeling off little buttons of candy and chewing it and ending up with paper wads in your mouth?
Were we nuts or what? Anything for sugar...

Well, I felt I could not deprive little AuBrynne of the joys of Paper Candy Buttons...
So, I made some.
I made them in the Halloween themed colors of
Black, Orange, Purple and Green
If you could make them sparkly, you know I would have...

They were very easy.
Whip up 2 egg whites in your stand mixer until they are fluffy and white.
Then mix in 2 and a half to 3 cups of powdered sugar.
Divide it into different bowls to stiri in your colors.
Put it into piping bags with a #3 tip.
Pipe out your buttons onto strips of paper.
The more sugar you add, the shorter the drying time.
I used 3 cups and they were 70% dry within 20 minutes.
90 minutes later and they were ready to be packaged.



Easy Peasy!

  8. Thanks for letting me know about your party! I added you to my linky party directory page. Oh, and when I added your button, the link wasn't working... I changed the first section of "http://..." to your URL instead of the button pic's address and it works fine now! Just thought you might want to know so you can change it if you need to (or just ignore me if I'm crazy :)).

  9. Just thought I'd let you know, you CAN make them sparkly, AND edible! There's this awesome stuff called luster dust, we used it in pastry class. It's similar to a powder eye shadow, you apply it with a paintbrush, and it makes it all shimmery looking. You can usually find it at cake decorating stores. Normally it's used on fondant, but we used it on chocolate.

  25. we used to attempt to make these ask kids. We used those lemonade packets and a little bit of water. Can I just say they were Bit your cheeks sweet/sour. WAY too strong. I'll show these to my sisters. See if they remember! Thanks for the stroll down memory lane and thanks for linking up to Topsy Turvy Tuesday's.

  26. These are too cute. I have an idea to use them for something - do you think you could add flavoring? Like the oils you buy to flavor other hard candy? And what kind of paper did you use? Just regular or waxed. Love your blog and adding it to my list of rounds.
