Watch these candymakers create adorable candies with a pig design

Candylabs is a Montreal shop that makes amazing handmade candies. They share their secrets to making adorable cylindrical cherry candies with a pig design. The process might keep you guessing until the end as to how they end up with such intricate designs on such tiny candies. Watch and learn!

Their charming origin story from their site:

CandyLabs is a brand new handcrafted candy shop in Montreal that emerged in 2014. A young couple, obsessed with the creation of flavorful candies, makes all of their unique and quality sweets in store. The concept was born in England. There, generations of candy makers prepared caramels and other hard candy in front of a delighted audience. It was in Australia that the young people learned the traditional techniques of candy making under the supervision of a confectioner. It is finally in Montreal, Canada where the couple realized their fantastic childhood dream by opening a candy shop of their own.

Bonus: same thing but with pandas inside a bamboo design:
