Sorry for the long absence. I have been working (full-time, blech!) and have neglected my blogging responsibilities. So much has happened since June, though. I'll get you back up to speed later, but for now: CANDY CORN!
I found a recipe for VEGAN candy corn. I guess regular candy corn has gelatin and eggs and milk in it. Anyway, I made it on Monday night. It was really easy and fun!! Like molding play dough that you can eat! My roommate and his girlfriend helped with the shapes. It's my new Halloween tradition. At first they didn't quite have the hard texture of candy corn, but after a few days, they are very similar!
In the photo you'll find a dog, a snail, small corn, big corn, a Mexican guy in sombrero, a clown, carrots, pumpkins (mellowcremes), and my gay pride candy! Not pictured that we also made include a monkey, a cat, and a pretzel.
I just learned, however, that Jelly Belly makes candy corn that is practically vegan (contains beeswax, which I don't mind eating... what?)
It's good to be back! Check out my new store http://hopeandspray.etsy.com/
