As compared with cooking or even baking, confectionery involves relatively few ingredients. It is how those ingredients are handled and the relative quantities of each that makes each confection unique. Understanding the basic properties of each ingredient and how ingredients interact enables the confectioner to succeed in creating precisely the results desired. The importance of this cannot be overstated: when a professional truly understands ingredients, there is nothing that he or she cannot accomplish in formulation.
