On Wednesday, I enjoyed a relaxed couple of hours at a Confectionery Workshop with my Mum and Nana. I didn’t know a lot about the course other than I expected to be making and eating sweets, and it turned out to be one of the best workshops I’ve ever been on. Here are a few pics from my evening of enjoyment.

Julie demonstrated how to make honeycomb, toffee, peanut brittle and fudge, and we got to have a go at making chocolate lollipops and decorating our own peppermint and hazelnut truffles.



I’d personally never seen honeycomb be made, so I really enjoyed watching it bubble up after the addition of the bicarb.




The evening had a lovely, cute tea party feel to it, making for a really relaxing evening. 20140821-101943.jpg


I also loved all the sweet things on offer to purchase (fantastic marketing there Julie!) and had to grab myself the shabby chic frame to the left of the three white hearts. At £2.40, it would have been rude not to!20140821-102001.jpgI got my work station in a right mess – everyone else seemed to have a pristine piece of greaseproof paper whilst mine was smeared with chocolate! Delicious though.


These chocolate pots were full of delightful liquid chocolate. We used them to make lollipops with, but I couldn’t resist dipping a couple of my truffles in them too.20140821-102035.jpg

The finished honeycomb and toffee – doesn’t it look amazing all together?20140821-102042.jpgMy lollipops and truffles

My fudge loaf! You cannot appreciate how dense and massive this was, such good value for money, as teamed with my box I came out with at least £10 (the cost I paid for the course) worth of sweeties. I’ve booked a French macaroon demonstration and will be going to that in September – I can’t wait!
