Last week I was out of town at a planning retreat. That included a visit to my friend Laurie's candy factory. Her preparations for Christmas are just plain amazing to me who makes NO candy, NO cookies, NO fruitcake. I guess I am not really a baker. I can if I have to. But I would never slave over any food item to this degree. But I can certainly appreciate it. And enjoy eating it.And I got to take this pretty box home! I think her candies this year are even better than and prettier than last year if that is possible. Really, it is edible art.
