lantern festival candy art

It is the time for the lantern festival (Yuan Xiao) that falls 15 days after the Chinese New Year. In preparation, Chinese people hold different festivities around the place from dances, theaters, lantern watching, lantern flying, the eating of special rice dumplings that look like moons (tangyuan), and different sugar candies. The one above is spun sugar in the shape of a butterfly that I saw a boy eagerly waiting to buy today.
