Make Your Own Mints (And Other Tiny Candies)

78a7e62a seeable

Taught by Jonathan Soma

Soma was born in the South, is what someone from the North would say. He co-founded the Brainery, is the sciencey half of Masters of Social Gastronomy, and plans on getting married to Waffle House. In his more droll moments he is a tragic sellout to higher ed as a professor of data journalism at Columbia University's journalism school.

Don't find Altoids to be curiously-strong enough? Let's make some.

Want to make candy without covering your hands in melted, burning sugar-napalm? Sounds good to me!

Gum paste candies have a tragic name but are in fact the best do-it-yourself candy. They're quick to make, easy to flavor, and not terribly likely to injure you.

Whip them into tiny cinnamon altoids, peppermint candy cigarettes, sour lemon sprinkles or a thousand other options. Want to go sugar-free? No problem.

We'll be whipping up a batch of gum paste and fashioning it into your very own custom-flavored candies. You'll leave with some very flavorful confetti.

Note: if it's important to you, this class will be using egg whites!
