How To Use Luster Dust In Lollipops


3 minute read

Have you ever made lollipops? They're super fun with the right products! Let's talk about how to use luster dust in lollipops! 

It's VERY important to start with a high-quality isomalt, like the one by our good friends Simi Cakes (click here)! Ed has used all types of brands throughout his career and none are as "clear" as Simi Cakes, so if you're interested in creating candy for cakes, cookies, cupcakes - be sure to follow Simi Cakes on Instagram (click here!) and shop their clear isomalt!

You should also be sure to add flavor to your lollipops as well! We love Lorann Oils, Ed has been using them for years, and you can add any combination of flavor you like to your clear candy.

Ed has used isomalt for many years, but when it comes to TEACHING isomalt - his good friend Sidney Galpern is the real expert. So be sure to follow her on YOUTUBE (click here) to learn all the basics and check out her series below on "Isomalt Basics!" -

LEARN ALL ABOUT LUSTER DUST 

It's important to understand the difference between an edible luster dust and a "decorative use only" luster dust! Not all luster dusts are formulated for consumption and the FDA has been cracking down on bakeries who use Highlighter on top of confections that are made for consumption.

All of our luster dusts are 100% edible, FDA Compliant and Kosher Certified! All of our colors are actually, including our Edible Glitter! You can rest assured that you are using safe products when choosing The Sugar Art for your cakes, cookies and all confections! 

Luster dust is truly magical inside of clear candy, and if you watch the tutorial above - you'll see the beautiful shimmer ribbons of color once the candy has fully cooled!
