When I was growing up in Michigan, we used to visit this quaint German village, Frankenmuth, with lots of cute shops. One cute shop in particular had these incredible European candies that you couldnt find anywhere else. My mom and dad would buy a big bag for the ride home. These candies must be a German thing because look at this cute shop in Berlin, Bonbonmacherei. They make the same style candies I used to get in Frankenmuth. Look at the awesome antique brass presses used to get the leaf and raspberry designs.
Bonbonmacherei revived the lost art of these handmade sweets. The master candy makers, Katja and Hjalmar use traditional recipes and antique equipment to turn out these adorable confections. Their specialty is the green leaf maiblatter or May leaves made with woodruff. This is a regional specialty.
