Format: Paperback
I love the concept of Candy Construction: How to Build Race Cars, Castles, and Other Cool Stuff out of Store-Bought Candy. I think candy can look so cute, but it doesn't seem edible to me much of the time, it seems like more of a toy (ie. Runts!). So I appreciated the author's recommendation to enjoy candy and treats by making crafts with them vs. just eating them! She cites several good reasons for this, including you can buy tons of interesting candies inexpensively at the dollar store, and it will last for a really long time. In addition, you may find that your children have at least as much fun using candy as a medium for creative projects, as they do eating it.

One nice thing about all the projects, is they are all entirely edible, no toothpicks or other things you need to warn children about for safety reasons. And it includes several recipes for frosting "mortar" to hold everything together. The chapter on "Things that Go Vrroom" has ideas for fun and delicious vehicles. The race car and bi-plane made out of chocolate, candy and cookies were simple, yet turned out amazing! I thought that either of these would be excellent as a party favor for a young boy's birthday.

In the Flights of Fancy section, there are pyramids (perfect for a school project!), pirates, castles, and more. My daughter loved the board games made from cookies and candy in the Fun and Games area. Plus, it makes playing the game more fun when you get to eat what you capture:). All kinds of delightful creatures abound in the Unnatural Wonders chapter, including beautiful, stained glass butterflies!

Format: Paperback
There are some cute ideas in this book, but I felt a lot of the finished products looked sloppy and unappetizing. This book might be good for kids, when the goal is the fun of constructing and the finished product doesn't really matter, but if you're an adult who wants to impress with great-looking goodies, skip it. If you're a good artist or cook, you may be able to use it for ideas and improve upon them.

I was hoping for more ideas. These ideas are good, but I guess I was just expecting more. It atleast has a good base for ideas.
