Kaye's Candy



Kaye is my Sister - a wonderful cook. She made this candy 30 years ago. It was a favorite for Christmas. I am making a custom Valentine Box Cake, with this as the candy. The "box" is a heart shaped red velvet cake covered with buttercream & topped with fondant. The candy sits on top.
