How-To: Confectioners’ Sugar Lollipop Molds

Food & Beverage

This confectioners’ sugar lollipop mold tutorial from King Arthur Flour is one of those great ideas that totally stopped me in my tracks. Instead of getting hard candy stuck in molds, why not just use confectioners’ sugar to make your own? Plus, depending on what object you use to make the indentations, you can get really creative with shapes and color layering!

    This is so flippin’ brilliant! Makes me think … you could use those plastic letter refrigerator magnets and make letter pops and spell fun stuff with them! Must try!

    This technique is used in every candy factory for for example jelly beans, winegums etc. But in stead of sugar they use a kind of flour.

    Petra, it’s probably not flour, but cornstarch of which you are thinking.
