Announcement   ♥️ Treat Yourself Sweetly™

♥️ All orders currently have a 2-3 week turnaround!

♥️International customers ~ I HIGHLY recommend purchasing tracking with your shipping. Standard international shipping does not come with tracking info, just a customs number. I can set up a separate listing charge for tracking, so you're able to monitor where your package is. Tracking is an additional $14 (actual USPS charge) along with your shipping fee. If you do not purchase tracking, there's no way that you or I can track where your package is.

FAQ

"How long do the lollipops last?"

The lollipops last approximately 4-6 weeks beautifully. After that, they might start to lose their shape and clarity, as they contain no preservatives. Lollipops that don't contain any fresh herbs are still perfectly edible to eat after a month. Humidity can also cause the lollipops to lose their shape.

"How can I store the lollipops?"

I recommended storing them in a food safe plastic bin, out of direct sunlight. They do not need to be refrigerated.

"Can I buy singles of the lollipops?"

We have the marshmallow moon single lollipops in the etsy shop. These are the only lollipops that we offer singles of at this time.

"Is everything edible in your lollipops?"

Yes! Everything is food grade, non toxic, and safe for consumption. If you have any specific questions about a certain ingredient, please send me a convo. We purchase all of our ingredients at candy and cake supply retailers.

"I like a certain design, but I don't like the flavor. Can I change it?"

Yes! Just send me a convo with what flavor you would like, I'm happy to sub flavors. There might be an additional charge for premium flavors.

"Can I have a discount on my order?"

We do not offer discounts on our lollipops. Everything is made by hand in small batches. We use the finest ingredients available. Lots of the lollipops are highly detailed and require a lot of time and skill creating each and every lolly. Everything is priced accordingly based on materials, time, and labor.

"Why are your lollipops so expensive?"

Please see above.

"Will you donate your lollipops to our event/gift basket/giveaway in exchange for publicity?"

We do not offer donations at this time.

"Will you send me free lollipops to review on my blog?"

We will not send you free lollipops to review on your blog. You are welcomed to purchase our lollipops and write about them on whichever platform that you choose.

♥Lots of new lollies are coming to the shop, please check this space often and follow our Twitter, FB, and Instagram.

About

Maker of magical pastries and confections in Los Angeles.

I've always been dazzled by all things sugar. I have fond childhood memories of wanting more than anything to play in Willy Wonka's candy garden, and I couldn't understand why crystal red candy apples sparkling on trees and buttercup sugar teacups were not readily available to me. Something had to be done about this!!

I went to pastry school a few years back and created lots of butttercream dreams. No macaron taunted me. No Marie Antoinette worthy French confection was too elaborate. I've had the great honor of creating confections for lovely clients and friends. It is an absolute joy to be able to do this and have people respond so positively.

Lollipops are just the beginning. I've only offered lollies in the Etsy shop because they have a nice shelf life and travel all over the world beautifully. Hard candy is my absolute favorite medium. I find it so gorgeous, and the possibilites are truly endless. I'm constantly dreaming up new flavors and designs and I'm always finding inspiration in the most unlikely of places.

Exciting things are happening with the little Etsy store that could! Thank you for finding my lollies and Etsy store. I'm beyond thrilled that people all over the globe have responded so wonderfully to my candy. What a treat!

<3 Vanessa

Thank you for finding my Etsy shop! I am pastry chef with a deep love for all things confection. I'd love to work with you to create custom flavors and designs. Some fruit works better than others in candies, i've listed flavor combinations that work beautifully and hold up very nicely. I always try to use organic fruit in my lollipops when available. All edible flowers and herbs are organic.

If you need larger quantities for an event, please contact me. We can also customize ribbon colors or prints to match a color palate. We'd love to be part of your special day.
