You wouldn’t happen to know a good recipe for rock candy would you? I have tried two different ones and they have just not worked.
Loving all the retro candy ideas! Both of these cakes are quite charming!
Fun ideas! I could totally see the cupcakes at a little girl’s birthday party! Pink and sparkly!

The crushed rock candy on the cake is a fun idea. Simple but unique!
mmmmmm! My mother and I are planning to make rock candy this week!
Do you happen to know a good rock candy recipe?
We baked these cupcakes for my daughters birthday and they were an epic fail. I used a 7 minute frosting with egg whites to make sure the frosting “crusted” a bit to hold the rock candy in place. We frosted them at 10 pm last night and by 6 am they were a runny droopy mess, which made the birthday girl a runny droopy mess, too. Before school we had to run to the bakery for replacements and the baker said the rock candy breaks down the frosting and makes it run. If you make these, test your recipe ahead of time. Or plan to frost them just before serving. This turned out to be an expensive lesson for us. The rock candy cup cakes had to be tossed and we had to buy expensive bakery replacements to save the day.
