{Tutorial} Daisy Cookie Pops by Sweetopia!

Share To:

Marian from Sweetopia created these gorgeous Daisy Cookie Pops for our recent Easter Brunch photo shoot for HGTV! Lucky for us, she is sharing a detailed tutorial on how to make them!

From Marian:

Nothing says spring like sweet little daisies.

These ones just happen to be a little sweeter. 😉

Daisy Cookies on a Stick

To make these you’ll need:


Making the Cookies:

Once your dough is ready…

Roll the dough out between two sheets of parchment paper.


Cut your cookie shapes out and place them on a parchment-lined baking sheet, placing the cookie shapes to make room for the lollipop sticks.

Making sure your dough is soft (not chilled), gently slide the lollipop stick into the cookie, about two-thirds of the way through.


Now chill the dough for one hour in the fridge. The cookies will hold their shape better when baked.

Bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 10 minutes or until the edges are slightly golden in color.

Prepare your royal icing colors (yellow & white).


Outline and flood the cookie right away. Shake gently if you need to help the icing settle. Icing consistency is imporant; if you’d like more detail please see here.

Let white base dry for a few hours and then pipe yellow center.


Pour sanding sugar over the wet, yellow icing, and shake off excess.


Let dry and add ribbon to make them pop!


Hope you enjoyed this daisy cookie how-to! If you have any questions or comments please don’t hesitate to drop me a line below!

    Thanks Sandy!
    I make them about 1 cm or 3/4 of an inch thick.

  10. Che says:

    Are the lolly pop sticks plastic or paper? How come they don’t melt in the oven? 🙂 gorgeous bickies )

  11. Thanks so much for the lovely comments everyone!
    Che, the lollipop sticks feel/look like the ones you’d find on a regular lollipop which feels kind of papery, not like the plastic ones. They are thicker, and are specifically made to be able to bake with. (I used the Wilton brand). Wish I could tell you exactly how it works! That’s an interesting question I’d like to find the answer to as well!

    They are soo sweet! Thanks for sharing! I would just like to know, you say you use “sanding sugar”. Im from South Africa and havent seen it around. We have the sugar crystals but they are too big. Any suggestions on substitutions? xxx

  23. Carol Dannenbrink says:

    Thank you for the fantastic tutorial! I’m making these for a daisy themed party, and would love an estimate of how many daisies each batch of dough might make (using your recipe). Thanks ever so much.

    • Carol Dannenbrink says:

      Found a good estimate in a reply on the dough page, so disregard my question! Thanks again.
