Candy Quilts is a creative exploration of candy making with a fresh new technique. Karen Carruthers has brought candy making to a whole new level of creativity. In Candy Quilts, she shares her secrets for designing and making extraordinary chocolates in the shapes and colors of traditional quilt patterns and designs. Cleverly, the quilt patterns are resized into custom molds, which can then be used for specialty candy and cookies. Carruthers also includes an abundance of recipes and worthwhile tips on how to create your own unique molds. For those creative in cooking and sewing (and even those who are not), the two skills have been merged into an exciting new craft that anyone can enjoy. Not only are these candies, cookies and lollipops fun to make at home, but they also make excellent wedding, graduation, baby shower and special occasion gifts, as well as provide a unique fundraising opportunity for local organizations. As Carruthers shows the reader, company and association logos, as well as promotional products, can also be retooled into molds, proving that with a little imagination, the sky is the limit in candy making.
