If you live in Melbourne or are planning on visiting, I would suggest going and having a look at Suga, is a small candy store in Bourke St Mall.
They make all of their own candy and show you how it is done. You can even create your own design.
Today when I went there it seemed to be very popular and is a great activity for kids in the school holidays. They also have other stores in Melbourne which you can find on their website.
