How to Add Color Details to Candy Lollipops

Adding color details to candies makes them more realistic and much more fun! For large areas of color, it's best to paint the melted candy right in the mold before the whole candy is molded using a decorator brush. Or, for very small details like vines, mouths and messages, melted candy should be piped onto molded candies using a parchment bag with a small hole cut in the tip.

How to Add Color Details to Candy Lollipops is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 16.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from I just started doing this for the fun of it but have been taking orders for the past 9 months now. Its fun except when quantities are increased at the last minute and deadlines are moved up. I have done most of the major holidays and baby showers galore. I got good quality very fine brushes and sometimes work under magnifying lamp. Patience is the key!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I did this for babyshower favors & it was all the rage. Because of the various flavors, the guest couldn't believe the weren't a special order. I was able to make 85 in 3 evenings after work.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy to do with the right paintbrush. Can be tricky for small moulds with fine detail.
