Candies and Bonbons Week 2

Hi everyone! I’d first like to take a moment to thank everyone for making todays production a success. You were all professional, worked in a timely matter and worked great as a team. There was a lot of communication with each other which helped the day run smoothly and I love how everyone helped each other in the end with giving a hand with their production to cleaning up. And for that, Thank You.

For this weeks production, we made numerous variations of hand-rolled bonbons. Team A made the Czech Chocolate Truffles and the Coconut Almond Candy, Team B made the Chilli Choco Sweets and the Dates and Coconut Rolls, Team C made the Apfelkugeln/ Apple Balls and the Stripped Marzipan Candies, lastly Team D made the Polish Walnut Roll/Salami and the German Chocolate Truffles. They all turned out beautiful as they were uniform in size and astheticaly pleasing to look at.

Just look at these platings:
