Birthday Party Candy

We had a great birthday party for a kid named Avner over the weekend. His party was a candy themed party, and Wes made a custom batch of candy for him and his party of kids. These were made Orange-Mango flavor and are graced with an image of a robot on the front. Way cool. Happy 8th Avner.

Toy Candy or Barley Candy

I had an opportunity to get some old metal candy molds from of all places, Germany. These are all American designs, mostly by Thomas Mills of Philadelphia. Here is where it gets confusing. These are copies, from the 50's or so I think. The original molds were made of pewter, which contains lead, these are cast of aluminum. This means to me the copies were made post WWII, but where and why I can not say. The nice bit is these are food safe, fun, and traditional. They were originally sold to be holiday gifts at Easter or Christmas for kids. Sometimes they were made with lollipop sticks, sometimes without. They were called Toy Candy, or Barley Candy, since you can get dextrose from Boiled barley that would keep the sugar from crystallizing. We can get dextrose in easier to use forms, so we don't use barley, but the candy is just as hard and just as good tasting. The batch I made today is strawberry.
Row 1: Tea Pot, Lion, Goat.
Row 2: Cow, Eagle Head (it's sideways), Teddy Bear, Hand
Row 3: Steam Engine, Rabbit, Turkey
And if you already remember, we already have a dog, Lobster, and another train.

π Pi Day - Free Ice Cream if you bring the pie.

it's March 14th (3.14) which is π - Pi Day! Bring in two slices of pie and get a free scoop of ice cream (one slice for you, one for us to eat to make sure we did it right ...). We'll even heat up the pie for you.
Mmmm. Pie.

Portable Soda Fountain Update

The portable soda fountain is coming along nicely. Today we got the mounts in to hold the cooling system and the tubs of ice cream. Thankfully I had Nick to help, I might not be able to fit into the cooler as easily as he did.
If you look in the top photo you can see the mock-up of the folding counter top. It should be able to sit two or three people at the fountain :)
