Let’s go to candy land
Move over Willy Wonka there's a new candy maker in town! Say hello to Spun Candy, makers of delicious handmade confectionary and hosts of brilliant candy masterclasses.
Fancy a peek inside a real-life candy factory? Let your inner Charlie Bucket emerge and learn how to make your own lollipops at Spun Candy Kitchen in Spitalfields in London.
Or if you don’t fancy getting sticky fingers, head to the shop (virtual or on your next trip to London) and stock up on all your favourite candy – from hardrock to honeycomb, lollipops to candy lips.
You don’t need to be Hollywood royalty Will Smith – or indeed actual Royalty, HRH The Queen – to have your own or a loved one’s face created out of candy. These personalised candy faces would make a fabulously whacky and unique gift for that hard-to-buy for friend, and can be ordered online by simply uploading a picture. Simples really. The cost is £40.
Personalised pet lollipops are also on the Spun Candy menu. Capture the character of your dog, cat, rabbit or even horse with a customised pet portrait made out of candy – another brilliantly bonkers gift idea for the sweet-toothed, pet-loving person in your life!
Or go one step further and book a candy face masterclass and make your own face lollipop! There’s also a The Great Candy Face-off Masterclass where you go head-to-head (excuse the pun) with your friends to see who can create the most realistic candy face!
The sweets at Spun Candy are created in a truly artisan way – it’s all handmade in small batched using vegan-friendly, gluten free and gelatine free ingredients and natural fruit flavourings.
Based in London’s Spitalfields, the workshops at Spun Candy are a brilliant thing to do with family, friends or kids if you’re planning a day out in the big smoke. It’s easy to find, and within easy walking distance of Aldgate East Tube station.
Spun Candy offer masterclasses for everyone – kids, families, corporate groups, hen gatherings, kids’ parties – which vary in length from one hour to three hours.
