As any true gourmet cook knows, there are different building blocks for different types of food preparation. For people who like to make homemade candy, the candy rolling pin is considered an essential item. Here’s some background on the candy rolling pin and how it’s used to create deliciously sweet concoctions in home and commercial kitchens.

Candy bricks follow the same basic design as most bricks. What sets the candy rolling pin apart from some other types is the material used to construct this particular model of rolling pin. The candy rolling pin is always metal, usually stainless steel. In order to ensure that the device works efficiently, the stainless steel rolling pin is usually coated with a non-stick surface, making it possible to work with even the stickiest mixtures to achieve the uniform smoothness required for candy.

With many types of candy, speed is of the essence so you can form the candy into sheets even before it gets cold and becomes more difficult to work with. The non-stick properties of the candy rolling pin allow you to quickly and evening create a smooth sheet of the substance, which can then be cut, rolled or folded before the candy becomes too stiff.

Using the same type of back-and-forth action that is used to smooth dough into the desired layer thickness, the Candy Rolling Pin prepares candy sheet in seconds. This allows plenty of time for cutting the sheet into sections. Once you’ve created your sections, it’s easy to move on to any next stage of preparation.

A good quality rolling pin can be used to create tasty nougat bars which are easily topped with coconut, chocolate or anything else desired. At the same time, a candy rolling pin is an essential tool in making fondant. As a delicate concoction that can be used as a rolled fondant icing or as a frosting layer on homemade candy bars, fondant is a good example of a substance that needs to be shaped before it gets cold. Highly pliable while still hot, fondant icing can be easily flattened with the candy rolling pin and then applied in sections to the outside of cake layers, candy bars, cookies, and any other dessert that would be enhanced by a layer of frosting.

The candy rolling pin is easy to clean and store. While some larger commercial models take up a significant amount of space, there are smaller models of candy bricks on the market today that fit neatly in any utensil drawer. For anyone who likes to make sweets at home, the candy rolling pin is an excellent addition to the kitchen.
