You Break It, You Eat It Dishes

This large plate is 11 1/2 inches, imagine it covered in petite fours.

The green bowls are just beautiful!
Timberlake Barley Candy
A friend of Lulu's vividly recalls our Alice In Wonderland party where she drank her tea (pink lemonade) and then ate the cup!
Imagine an entire birthday party with edible dishes, spoons and cups!
This type of candy is called barley sugar or clear toy candy and it first appeared in the 18th century. Barley candy looks amazingly like glass, and the detail is stunning. Timberlake Candy Company has the largest variety of candy dishes, and they even have candy pedestals to add to candy plates.

This is just the coolest thing ever. I've told you before I don't know what I would do without you sharing so many things that shouldn't me missed in one's lifetime. I have to remember this for my daughter's upcoming sweet 16.
