From humble beginnings, experimenting in the chocolate decorations industry, learning techniques from “trial and error”, attending courses, I found ways to make chocolate decorations for a variety of businesses, corporate functions, lodges, restaurants, special events and launches.
We supplied hotels, restaurants, the corporate market, weddings, special occasions, and the like. Themed dessert creations have always been my passion, and I was fortunate enough to have been given the opportunity of designing the desserts of many Nederberg Wine Auctions, the desserts for the inauguration of Nelson Mandela and Thabo Mbeki, Nelson Mandela’s 85th birthday bash at the Sandton Convention Centre, the opening of the ICC in Durban, the opening of The Palace at Sun City. I was also privileged to be chosen as part of the South African team on two occasions to represent South Africa at the Bocuse de Ore in Lyon, France.
Now, some 30 years later the change in direction sees Crystal Candy creating silicone moulds with sights set on becoming industry leaders.
WHAT WE DO
Currently displaying eleven collections / ranges of silicone moulds – totaling around 90 different designs and with our own Crystal Lace Flexible Icing, Crystal Candy is only just getting into its stride. With another two collections on the drawing board (a first in the world – when they launch) set to be released in the first quarter of 2016, and on the cards a further 2 new collections to be released each quarter thereafter.
So if you are decorating cupcakes for kiddies parties, cake pops for occasions, birthday cakes or prestigious wedding cakes, then our lace moulds are for you.
From novice to professional, the hobbyist and anyone in between – there is bound to be something here for you.
From concept stage to the finished product, all Crystal Candy moulds are authentic and unique, created by ourselves. Drawing on inspiration from ideas around the world, research on trends and peeking at different industries, we then create collections that will make cake decorating fresh and easy.
Our wide range of silicone mats offer different finishes, from our largest and most popular range; Gold Collection, to our more narrow lace designs; Platinum Collection. Then with all the other silicone moulds such as Doily Collection, MultiArt Collection, Cupcake Topper Collection and our 3D Floral Collection, there is sure to be something that you’ll love and will work perfectly with your edible creations.
We are proud of what we do and take great pleasure in supplying these items to all who wish to make use of them.
