Candy Construction

Build a candy fantasy! Sharon Bowers shows you how to use ordinary store-bought candy and cookies as the raw material for a brand-new kind of crafting. Top a sheet cake with a crushed-cookie racetrack, tiny candy cars, and a candy pit crew—and watch the delight on your birthday boy’s face. Set out fudge-striped cookies and peanut butter cups to keep small family members busy making pilgrim hats on Thanksgiving Day. Spend a rainy afternoon with your kids, making a pirate ship complete with little pirates made of licorice and candy corn. You’ll find simple, step-by-step instructions for making dozens of things children love, including spaceships, butterflies, a fairy-tale castle, a dump truck, planes, Egyptian pyramids, aliens, a steam train, Christmas trees, Easter eggs, and much more — all crafted with candy. The sweet possibilities are endless!
