To create an image within a hard candy, like a cute shiba inu face, the design is formed with units of candy, like pixels, as if drawn on graph paper. How many units wide, for example, are the dog’s white cheeks or dark nose?
The molten candy is colored and shaped into stretchy candy chunks; layering those long chunks together, based on the design, creates a large version of the image.
In this candy-making video, a Taiwan-based team from the international Papa Bubble company work together to roll a handcrafted log into shape. Since the warm candy requires constant attention, multiple candy makers share the kneading and shaping duties.
With some additional heat, the log is stretched into thin rods, before being cooled and cut into tiny pieces. On each side, the shiba inu design is revealed.
