If you’ve ever wondered how candy canes are made, look no further. Above, Tallahassee artisanal candy maker Lofty Pursuits demonstrates how to make candy canes by hand. Watch as the candy makers cut and twist the ingredients into a shimmery-surfaced log, before twisting them into extra-large candy canes.
Interesting note at 3m15s: The canes have white centers to make the colors shine/reflect light.
Below: Watch How It’s Made – Candy Canes. Automated machines mix and pull massive wads of candy before rolling candy logs into thin ropes, then the machines twist, cut, and packaging each stick.
Surprising note from this one: The machines crook the canes after they’re packaged.We love seeing how things are made. Related watching:
