With keen intuition and tireless energy Laura Darnall spent many hours in the kitchen making candy as a hobby.
In 2007 her crafty candy took her as a contributing sponsor to the prestigious Oklahoma State Sugar Art Show where her product was very well received by professionals and the public at large.
In 2008 Laura founded Candy Craft Creations with the help of friend and partner, Lois Judy.
Laura and Lois met on the sidelines of the soccer field where their daughters were on the same traveling soccer team. They struck up a fast friendship and Laura brought her candy dough to a soccer party at Lois’ home. Lois loved the flavor and suggested that she should really pursue further marketing of such a unique product. Laura asked if she would help and Lois committed wholeheartedly with yes.
The dough was then transformed by Laura into a fondant and the First Original Buttercream was introduced. They formed Candy Craft Creations and Lois coined the name “Fondarific” and off they went marketing their product at Tradeshows all over the US. They proudly made their product debut at the International Cake Exploration Societe’ in Orlando, Florida in July, 2008.
Lois and Laura both feel that everything happens for a reason and that they have been blessed with family and friends who have provided relentless support and for that they are eternally grateful. They are committed to providing quality fondant to sugar artists everywhere.
