I’m not sure if I shared this with anyone or not. After I finished the great candy-a-thon last year I asked my dear friend Willow if she would come over and take photos. I had packed 740 individual boxes of candy. That was a feat.
Willow was so kind and at 9:00 on a Tuesday night she came over and made us rearrange our entire family room to get the shot. It took us a good 20 minutes to haul in all of the boxes and set them up. She snapped a few photos and most of them were quite humorous. One turned out to be the best.
Why did I do that? I knew that I would probably never make 4700 truffles again. It was ridiculous. I wanted to document that achievement. However, I never shared the images.
I was going through a few files on my computer and came across the photos she took. The first thing I thought (besides, wow, I’ve lost a ton of weight) was holy crap that’s a lot of boxes. It was.
I don’t want to do that again. I simply can’t make 4700 truffles and 2600 caramels and still keep my sanity. I’m ok with less.
Would I do it again if I had that many orders?
In a heartbeat.
