Confections for the Holidays

18th Century Confections

 During the holiday season, I love  to work with confections of the 18th century.  At the far left of the picture, my comfit pan is hanging for the twelve charges of sugar syrup that I will put on  caraway seeds.  On the table, I have two plates of wafers, a marchpane with comfits, and another plate with a round marchpane.  I am working on a marble surface shaping marchpane to fit on a wafer prior to being finished off in the bake oven.
