What can I use to write letters on a lollipop?
I want to write letters on a lollipop. I am making baseball lollipops. They are half rounds. The lady wants NY on them for the Yankees.
I didn't know if I could use melted chocolate and what would I put it in. The surface is not flat. I thought if I used candy, can I use a decorating bag? Or can I use canned icing, would it even stick?
Help...this is a project due in 2 weeks.
Writing on lollipops is a cute idea. I assume you are referring to chocolate lollipops made from chocolate molds.
If that is the case, I personally would just melt some white chocolate (or chocolate in a contrasting color to your lollipop) and place it in a small plastic ziploc bag. Just snip off the corner and use that to write the letters NY on your lollipop and allow it to set.
If you already have a decorating bag with a small writing tip, that would work well, too.
I wouldn't suggest you try the canned icing because it probably won't harden enough. Although Royal Icing might work in a pinch.
If you are actually making hard candy lollipops instead of chocolate, I don't know if the chocolate will stick to the candy. I suspect it won't. The Royal Icing might be the best option in that case.
I'd love to see a picture of the finished lollipops when your project is done. Do come back and add it here.
