“I always go back to when I was six years old and watched ‘Willy Wonka’ and everything from there unfolded,” stated Jackie Sorkin, “Candy Queen.”
It is a winter wonderland of cotton candy, gummies, bitter strips, and marshmallows as the sugar explosion is meticulously designed into a residence. There’s a gummy bear chandelier, a working sink that gives chocolate milk, and a sugar dice igloo that is stuffed with marshmallows.
“We always try to incorporate candy, chocolate, yummy things that our guests can eat,” Sorkin stated. However most of it’s meant to be loved together with your eyes.
The unimaginable work would not at all times come straightforward and Sorkin’s real-life staff can convey the drama as they battle over the placement of candies on a desk or the unintentional destruction of a penguin that took days to construct.
“Really what everyone sees is this incredible team that for me, I get really emotional, I know it’s a business, I know where we are going, I know why we are working this hard, the vision, the goal, the promise, the purpose, the what, all that stuff, I get that, but this is my family to me,” she stated.
You may see the complete mission happen full with a massive disclose to a group of kids and an investor who is considering constructing a candy lodge.
“Things are happening in Tennessee in Nashville that makes me want to die with you right now,” Sorkin stated. “So yes, there are things happening!”
