Look at this beautiful candy! Each piece looks like an antique glass paperweight with a rose blossom inside. Gregory Cohen of Lofty Pursuits (previously at Neatorama) shows us how they are made. While this batch of candy is cherry-flavored, later batches produced rose-flavored candies.
A lot of work goes into these, so I don't think you'll be making them at home. But while we watch the magic unfold, Cohen keeps us entertained by talking about everything under the sun. You can buy the candy at Public Displays of Confection. -via Laughing Squid
