i have made cookie bouqets using popsicle sticks because they are wider and i thought they might hold cookie better..i have never tried sucker sticks do they hold strong as well? thanks gizzmo
I usually use bamboo skewers and they work great. I want height to my cookies that are in the back. I have never had a problem with them. I have baked the cookies with the skewers inserted before baking as well as placing the skewers in the cookies after baking. I prefer prior to baking. The skewers are easily cut for differing heights.
I've never had a problem using the sucker sticks. I've inserted them into the cookies before baking and I've also used either royal icing or candy melts to stick them to the back of the cookies.
I have used both popsicle sticks and cookie pops sticks. I never have a problem with either of them. Insert them prior to baking and you won't have to worry about them falling off.
Cookie pops sticks come in 2 lengths. This way you can stagger the height of your cookies.
I have just started using wooden coffee stirrer sticks. They come in a box with around 1000 sticks for less than five bucks. They work great. If I need height, then I just wrap a second stick after decorating. I prefer this to the sucker sticks because they don't spin. I use the bamboo skewers for my smaller accent cookies. These are great when adding small butterflies and flowers to boquets.
I use sucker sticks. I have found the wooden dowels too think. And those of you with the bamboo...are you talking the ones you use on the grill? Where do you get them....are they strong..like would withstand shipping shakes?
I've always just used sucker lolipop sticks and attached with melted candy melts...it never occurred to me to use the popsicle sticks. What a great idea!
