The concept of Candy.Cuisine was born after stumbling upon several playful food photography blogs and photographers. I was immediately intrigued by their use of food as art, and knew I needed to create something of my own. It was then that I thought, “Wouldn’t it be really neat if I could manage to manipulate candy and make it look like real food?”…And that’s exactly what I did! Using candy as a medium does get a bit ‘sticky,’ as there is a limit to what I can use. It forces me to constantly think outside of the…wrapper. Although tricky at times, candy allows me to create whimsical and unique art, which I hope others enjoy as much as I do.
