Etsy Crush of the Week: Designer Lollipop

Designer Lollipop

Interview with Pricilla of Designer Lollipops

Designer Lollipop- Eye Of SauronCan you tell us a bit about yourself?

HI! My name is Priscilla and I was born and raised in Utah. I love the mountains, cooking and art. I absolutely love to learn, I have worked in the fields of Massage Therapy, Digital Artistry, Photography, Photoshop Artist, and finally Candy Curator.

How did your designer lollipop Etsy shop come to be?

Designer Lollipop opened in November of 2012. I have always loved edible images and one day I put them inside a lollipop! IT took us a while to work out the kinks in our recipe but finally we have that brilliant, clear front which show cases our Art. I have to say that I think the Planet Lollipops and Creature Eyes have to be my absolute favorite!

How long on average does it take you to make a lollipop?

We make our lollipops in large batches. We make close to 160 at a time and it takes 3 hours give or take. I personally make them all by hand. It starts with designing the image, creating both sides of the candy. Secretly ;) getting that image inside and then each one is polished by hand and sealed tight in plastic.

Do you have any funny crafting stories?

Funny story, I had made probably close to 12 batches of candy and had forgotten to stick the sticks in. Can I just say too, candy making can be very hard. I have burned so many batches that I can’t even count them on my hands!

I know you do custom pieces for customers, have you had any favorite or unusual requests? Designer Lollipop- Death Star Lollipops

I have to say that my most unusual request was from a guy in Canada. He was a visual art major and had his final project coming up. He really wanted to do something unusual to showcase Violence in the world.

So he sent me some violent images, quite frankly they were pretty sad and wanted me to put them inside lollipops. He wanted to see if people could eat the lollipops. I will let you know how the study went, next time I talk to him!

Favorite custom lollipops I have done: I love doing Weddings! I have had many customers call and send me personal images to put inside the lollipops. They get it! They want one of a kind and we are totally excited about one of a kind lollipops!

If you were on a deserted island what video game, comic/book, movie, TV show would you bring? 

Deserted Island, I wouldn’t play video games or read comic books. I would be running in the ocean, forget electronics!
