Candy-Heart is very sweet and generous; often baking for others and not for bits. Because of this, she often runs into money problems due to her poor financing. Even so, her money problems do not last long since ponies tend to pay her good deeds back. She's also quite gullible and tends to get tricked a lot.
However, her trust for everypony and general kindness has caused her to be surrounded sejak great Friends that are ready to get her out of any issue.
Despite her workplace she is quite clumsy and can be a bit of a ditz at times, so it's a common-place event for her to have a little flour on her nose atau a smear of icing on her cheek. Kandi is also prone to over-working herself for the sake of other's; tending not to care about her own well being and appearance. Due to this Candy-Heart's mane and tail are messy, always in what she refers as "Organised Chaos".
Candy-Heart grew up mostly in her grandmother's care because her parents were travelling magicians. Her grandmother was a retired famous baker, so she'd often spend the hari with Kandi teaching her new recipes and tricks of the trade. Kandi looked up to her grandmother immensely and decided at a very young age she'd follow in her grandmother's footsteps but at the time was too young to do so.
A few months after her parents returned Candy's grandmother fell very ill and ended up being sent to the Manehatten Hospital, where Kandi would visit her routinely everyday after school atau in the afternoon on weekends. Four months later her grandmother died and as a way to deal with the loss Kandi would cook because she felt as if her grandmother was with her when she did so.
Whenever Candy-Heart was at school she was often teased sejak her classmates about how clumsy she was and no-pony would trust her with anything. Even in her friend bulatan there was a caution with what ponies would get Kandi to do atau go near.
After it was announced her class was in charge of the cake stall at the school fair, Candy-Heart told her Friends about how she wanted to sell some of her treats. Her Friends didn't think Candy-Heart would be able to cook but encouraged her anyway. Unfortunately the school bullies overheard and began teasing Candy, saying she'd probably slam her hoof in the ovenen atau fall face first into the dough.
Fueled sejak determination to prove the bullies wrong, Kandi put all her effort into a Kandi epal, apple recipe her grandmother taught her, staying up all night to make as many batches as possible. At the fair everypony quality such a young filly produced and the first epal, apple batch sold out quickly. For the whole hari she was constantly making new batches because of the popularity and ended up raising over two thousands bits for the school. Upon realization that she did have the talent and ability to follow in her grandmother's footsteps Kandi got her cutie-mark.
After she finished school, Candy-Heart pursued her dream of becoming a famous baker and took an apprenticeship at Sugar-cube corner and worked there up until around a bulan before Twilight Sparkle arrived in Ponyville. Using all the knowledge the Cakes taught her, Candy-Heart opened a kuih-muih, manisan store in her hometown of Manehatten called "Clumsily Candied" almost as a way to remember what drove her to create the candy-apples that got her her cutie-mark. She lives and works in this store even to this day.
Accessories: When baking Candy-Heart wears an apron, chef's hat and a bracelet with a strap that she can put tools in so she can use spoons, whisks, rolling-pins ect. with ease.
