Mackinac Island Fudge Festival 2013

Today is the beginning of a very festive weekend on Mackinac Island, as today starts the Mackinac Island Fudge Festival! There are a lot of fun events going on, but the real event will be what you’ll find inside the fudge shops! Here are a couple of pictures from around May’s Famous Fudge shop from this summer:

And here I am, IN the fudge! My brother, Lee May, is an artist and graphic designer, and when he’s not creating art on his computer or sketchbook, he’s creating artwork in the fudge.

Stirring up all kinds of hotness! I believe we had just started to cook a batch of carmel.

Cashew brittle that had just been poured onto the marble slab. The next step? flip it over and stretch it out!

In an attempt to catch up to my brother’s artwork, I’ve been working on my penmanship in the fudge:

And after a long day of fudge making, all I have left to do now is cut the fudge and clean the marble slabs.
