daisy cookie pops

These cookies are pretty much the same as my blue and red chocolate version HERE, but instead I used my almond sugar cookie and put them on a stick. And I used different colors. And I made a vegan daisy chocolate sandwich cookie version sandwich cookie (post forthcoming).


how to make daisy cookie pops

you will need:*
dough
icing
lollipop sticks (optional)
white rolled fondant
circle cookie cutter (about 2 1/2 to 3 inches)
mini circle fondant cutter (about 1/2 inch)
small daisy fondant or cookie cutter(s)

frosting colors (Sky Blue, E
lectric Green and Egg Yellow)
3 frosting bags

3 couplers

3 decorating tips (2 size “4″s and 1 size “3″)
3 rubber bands

wax paper
rolling pin
light corn syrup

*Find the sticks, fondant, cutters, and all of the frosting bag supplies in the craft store. You can use their coloring, too, though I prefer Americolor soft gel pastes (click on the link, then click “Links” for tips where to buy). CLICK HERE or more tips on where to find supplies.


step one: bake your cookies
Roll out your chilled dough according to the recipe and cut out circles thick enough to accommodate sticks (if using, about 1/4 inch). Place on parchment paper-lined baking tray and insert sticks about half way into cookie. Pat cookie back in place if needed. Make sure sticks don’t touch other cookies or each other. Bake according to recipe and let cool completely.

step two: prepare your daisies
Briefly knead a chunk of white fondant and roll thinly between two pieces of wax paper. (If fondant gets too sticky, let sit uncovered at room temperature about 15 minutes until easily pliable.) Cut out daisies and set aside. Take another chunk of fondant and add yellow coloring, a drop at a time, and knead very well. Roll thinly between two pieces of wax paper and cut out mini circles. Set aside to stiffen a couple hours. After they stiffen a bit, dab a dot of light corn syrup on back of mini circles and press onto center of white daisy. Let dry (overnight if possible).

step three: prepare your frosting
Prepare frosting. Tint about 1 or more (depending on how many cookies you want to make) cups blue (always start with one drop and add more, one at a time, to achieve desired color), 1 or more cups lime green and about 1/2 cup yellow. Prepare three frosting bags with the couplers and tips. Fill each with about 1/2 cup of blue, green and yellow. Use the size “4″ tips for the blue and green and the size “3″ tip for the yellow. Reserve the remaining blue and green in covered bowls.
step four: flood your backgrounds
Outline a circle cookie with blue or green by piping with the frosting bag. Let set about 15 minutes. Thin the same color reserved frosting with water, one drop at a time, until the consistency of thick glue (not tooooo thin, shouldn’t be too runny). With a small spoon or a squeeze bottle, pour some frosting in the center of the cookie, letting frosting slowly ooze to the edges, encouraging with the back of a spoon or small knife as needed. Let cookies sit overnight to dry, if possible.

step five: assemble your cookies
Dab corn syrup on the back of a daisy and adhere to cookie. Pipe a few yellow dots for accents.
