We attended the Lollipop Making Class and came home with 6 gorgeous Rainbow Lollipops. You’ll definitely have a sugar buzz after eating one of these! I’m not sure I have what it takes to be a Spun Candy master but it was a lot of fun regardless.
The class was informative and despite there being a few kids parties, getting to join had us feeling like big kids ourselves. We graduated with Candy Making Diplomas any big smiles on our faces.
