i cant find candied lemon slices!

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
hey peeps,

does anyone know where i can buy candied lemon slices like they use in dc cupcakes for their lemon blossom cake? I've e-mailed georgetown cupcake but they cant give me the vendor details (damn!), and i've tried making my own but they are way too big for the cakes.

I just need the little one just like the ones they use. Anyone know where i can get them from?

Thanks all x x

I can't really tell from the photo what the lemon is made of - but are you just trying to replicate the "look" of the topper? You can make them from fondant or GP, or like the comment above suggest, get some of the jelly candy fruit slices from the grocery/Walmart. The come as half-moon slice shapes, you could always halve or quarter them to make them smaller for your toppers. HTH!

Good question! I have wondered that as well. I wonder why they can't give vendor details. The link mburkett linked has the best I've seen.

This bakery is not too far from where I live:

https://www.cup-cake.com/index.php

Their candied lemon and lime slices look just like the ones Georgetown uses. Maybe you could call or e-mail and ask them? They might be able to share. I'm planning to stop in there one of these days, so I can ask too!

It looks like you can't order through their website though.

Cream, if you need them in the UK, I know I've got them in Tesco before. Online should be cheaper for bulk though.
