About The Artist
Unique Candy Bouquet Designs are Created by The Candy Bouquet Artist

Lana Rae Badouin is the "Candy Bouquet Artist". Using her creativity, imagination, and artistic floral design skills, she has become the master of candy bouquet making and has elevated it to an art form. While each of her handmade designs are delightfully tasty, they are such a unique piece of art you may want to just admire them instead of eat them.
