Method

Grease the baking sheet and cookie cutter with oil and keep it ready.

Add sugar into a round deep ladle using a wooden chopstick keep mixing till they melt and changes to light honey colour syrup. Do not caramelize till dark they will turn bitter. Switch off the stove.

This syrup will be too hot so handle careful and avoid touching with your fingers.

Add the baking soda and mix quickly till they form foamy.

Pour it immediately on the greased baking sheet and insert a candy stick and gently press with a plate on top for a second and remove.

Press the cookie cutter in the middle to give a print , I used a metal bottle cap.

Do not cut it till the end. I used a small toothpick pricked and removed the edges to hold the shape (this step is optional)

Enjoy.
