The above photo of strawberry paté de fruits looks entirely normal and would lead you to believe that this challenge went off without a hitch.
This is not the truth.
Much like my first Daring Bakers’ Challenge a year ago today, this challenge was a hot mess.
Before we go into details, let me tell you a little bit about this challenge. The August 2011 Daring Bakers’ Challenge was hosted by Lisa of Parsley, Sage, Desserts and Line Drives and Mandy of What the Fruitcake?!. These two sugar mavens challenged us to make sinfully delicious candies. This was a special challenge for the Daring Bakers because the good folks at http://www.chocoley.com offered an amazing prize for the winner of the most creative and delicious candy.
