Candy Making Wokshop with Cricket Snearing

On March 6th, 2005, a group of 30 women and teens gathered for an afternoon of gourmet candy making. This delectable course was successfully lead by Cricket Snearing, renowned candy maker, party planner, and craftsperson. The group generally consisted of amateur cooks with limited experience.

After a few select tips and demonstrations from Cricket and her asisstant Jackie, the attendees were able to turn out delicious and fancy professional chocolate covered pretzels, strawberries, and apricots, gourmet popcorn and cashew bark, as well as delightful confections like chocolate covered oreos, carmel and marshmallow treats.

Following the preliminary session, Cricket provided more advanced training in white chocolate deviled eggs and gourmet sugar coated peaches. The "icing on the cake" came at the end of the party. Cricket taught the new graduates how to wrap goodies with spring flowers and ribbons, providing all in attendance with gift boxes brimming with scrumptious treats for family and friends. A special thanks to Cricket and Jackie Drobny for providing such a sweet afternoon for supporters of the KSMF. Kudos also go to Lorraine Drobny for sharing her kitchen with the somewhat messy group!
