Making Candy fairy wands and Pixie dust
Are you familiar with Crazy dips lollipops? They are foot shaped lollies that you dip in this flavored powdered sugar with popping candy. Inspired by crazy dips, I made Candy fairy wands and pixie dust. Since I was having a hard time finding star shaped candy molds, I just improvised. I used aluminum trays and a star shaped cookie cutter in making the molds.
I dyed some bamboo skewers with food coloring . The next day I washed them under running water then dried them out in preheated toaster oven for 2-3 minutes .

I didn't cook up a whole batch of candy since I would only be making 7 pieces. I just crushed different flavors of hard candies.
I placed in the preheated toaster oven for 3-5 minutes until fully melted. Some oozed out but I just scraped them off with a knife.

Sugar + sugar = Sugar high! lol! Hey, every child deserves some sweet treats once in a while! I only put 1 tsp of kool aid and 2 small packets of popping candy in each plastic bag.
I also made some candy ladybugs.
Sis has no idea what I will come up with these yet. She calls them ladybug skewers. lol!
Done baking the cookies! I inserted the bamboo skewers while the cookies were still hot. These are Fairy wand cookies. I'll be baking the cupcakes tomorrow night and frost them on Sunday morning.
