Daisy lollipops? Who knew?

Sibylle from the awesome blog Funkytime (she’s also got her own magazine too!) was kind enough to share this tutorial for making daisy lollipops with IW readers. Wouldn’t these make splendid wedding favors?

Daisy Lollipops Tutorial

You will need:

2 cups of sugar
2/3 cup of water
1/8 teaspoon Cream of Tartar
2 to 3 drops flavoring oil
daisy or other edible flower

Combine the sugar and Cream of Tartar with the water. Stir them together until the sugar is dissolved. Boil the mixture until it’s 290 degrees F. (Or putting a drop of it in cold water, which results in a hard bead.)

Take it off the heat and then add the flavoring. Pour the mixture into the prepared molds as shown here.  Place a little daisy carefully face down on the hot candy. Then pour a little bit more hot candy over the flower  to cover the backside.

Cool down and wipe the powered sugar off of the lollies. Rinse them with a little bit of water to get all the sugar off.

    Pansies, violets, dandelions, squash blossoms, hibiscus, rose, lavender...I'm sure there are more, but those are the ones I've tried that I can recall.

    How soon before the wedding can you make these? I am going to use wooden lollysticks and have them as my place settings!

    Roughly how many lollies can you make with this recipe?

    Cute idea, but why make all of that mess when you can easily get lollipop molds? I live in AK and even I can get them at Walmart or Michaels. Or you could just pour them onto parchment paper if you don't want to buy molds or if you want them more 'rustic' looking.

    PS: make sure the flowers you get aren't sprayed
