This guide aims to help you get to grips with the basics of confectionary, from the science and the process behind tempering chocolate, to an in-depth look at how to melt and use Candy Melts, and different ways in which you can present your creations!
When you've spent time and effort creating your candies and confectionary treats, why not do them justice and present them to your recipient in style? With that in mind, we've put together a little list of packaging and presentation ideas to help inspire.
Perfectly sized for homemade confectionary treats, treat bags are a refined way to give a tasty gift. Generally made from food-safe cellophane, there are many variations of these bags available to purchase. For example, lollipop bags are sized and shaped specifically for lollipops, while cake pop bags are sized and shaped to house cake pops. Once filled, tie a bow with pretty ribbon for a truly special finishing touch.
Ideal for storing homemade sweets and lollipops, foil wrappers allow you to wrap up your treats in a traditionally opulent manner. Due to the foiling, these wrappers ensure that your candies are kept fresh and protected whilst emulating total luxury. Available in bright, solid, metallic colours, these cute wrappers are perfect for wedding favours and Easter chocolates, among many other extra-special occasions.

Candy boxes are generally constructed from cardboard and can feature an abundance of different designs, but are often left blank to decorate. Although attractive in appearance, candy boxes have an enormous amount of practicality too – what better way to keep your candies fresh whilst safely transporting them?
