How Can I Keep My Lollipop Sticks in The Cookies For Bouquet

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 
I cannot seem to keep those sticks in! At first I thought I wasn't baking them thick enough so, I changed that but they still pop out. Does anyone have any suggestions? I need to make a cookie bouquet as a gift for a baby shower next week.

Just squirt a little royal icing in the hole, then put the stick back in, lay flat to dry, worked like a charm for me. HTH

Thanks "Linedancer" for the advice. I'm going to try it out today.

I think c8kdreemz did bake the cookies with the sticks in. If I understood the problem correctly, the sticks were coming out of the cookies when she was either decorating them or placing them in the bouquet.

If I want the sticks baked in the cookies, I follow a tip I found here on CC. You bake a short stick in the cookie, then take it out to decorate. Use royal icing to keep them in after they are decorated. It helps in two ways. You can bake more cookies on a sheet with the short stick. The stick is not in the way when you decorate. Sorry, I do not remember who the OP was for that thread.

The other method I use is Shiney's stick on the bag method. This way you do not bake the sticks in the cookies, but hot glue and tape it on the bag. Then you just put the cookie in the bag and tie with ribbon.

Here is a bouquet I did with the first method.

They don't really "bake out", but the hole seems to expand a little and the stick loosens. Then the cookies just spin round and round on the stick. So if you add the royal, when it dries solid, the cookie doesn't spin any more..

madmillie, do you think we're supposed to decorate the 'ugly' side if we do it like in the tutorial?

I have only used the Wilton pans that have the indent for the stick to be baked in the cookie. I saved this tutorial because it would give me more options, meaning I can use any cookie cutter, rather than being stuck with the Wilton pans I have. I guess you could decorate the ugly side, it would be very time consuming and more costly.

no no...I mean decorate the ugly side instead of the top side...

just curious...if using royal icing, would there be noticeable lumpies where there are lumpies in the cookie or if they would somewhat disappear when flooded...

not a make or break ...just popped into mind when I seen the baked cookie pop...
