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.
