    Default Can I use baking soda??????

    We made sugar candy frames but they didn't harden. Does anyone know if you can use baking soda to stiffen the sugar? Will it be okay for the bees?

    I agree with BeeCurious. Temperure and time are VERY important making bee candy.

    Scrape it off and continue to boil it the rest of the way. Don't start adding ingredients at random.
