In honor of National Lollipop Day we have gathered up some of the most unique lollipops
Lollipop, sucker, lolly, stick-pop or whatever you may call it lollipops are a childhood staple and today we celebrate National Lollipop Day. There is no pinpoint date that lollipops were invented, but edible candy on a stick has probably been reborn several times.
The lollipop's birth could possibly date to 1916 when Samuel Born invented the Born Sucker Machine, which mechanically inserted the stick into the lollipop candy piece. This Russian candy-maker won the key to San Francisco for his invention and later went on to open none other than Just Born candy company, who manufacture Peeps, Mike and Ike, and Peanut Chews.
The name “lollipop” for the confectionary treat on a stick is credited to George Smith, who claims to have first coined the phrase “lollipop” in 1931 naming it after his favorite horse.
Although the lollipop has an indistinct history the candy is timeless. It has inspired other treats on a stick such as cake and pie pops. At TDM, we gathered up a few crazy lollipops, even adults can enjoy.
The flavored pops include chicken suckers and sour flush toliet lollipops from the Neatoshop, cola-flavor mustache lollipops from Amazon, and lollipops with real insects inside from Candy Favorites. We also found these unique flavors at Lollyphile:

We all miss the simpler times, when our biggest concern was who we were going to share our candy stash with and play with on the playground. As the end of the semester creeps closer, and graduation is looming over some why not throw it back to some of our favorite times. With these boozy alternatives to our favorite sweets why not try some of these candy-inspired cocktails, because what’s better than alcohol and acting childish.

10 Crazy Lollipops - Recipes
So very awesome and delicious, thanks Steph! :D
You didn't mention that this cake fights back when you try and cut it. There's serious risk of popping candy to the eyeball.
Uooo!!This cake is gorgeous!! =) =) =) I love it!!
Holy cow! That is one lucky friend! :D *tries to scrape jaw off the floor* I love how colorful it is, not hard on the eyes at all!!
Just when I thought you can't make anything more magical. You did it again. :))
Yesterday I promised to make my grand-daughter a rainbow cake for her 3rd birthday. I had only meant rainbow layers inside but now I'll make it with rainbow icing as well, she'll go crazy for this cake!
Thank you so much for sharing all your wonderful creations with us.
This is the most beautiful cake I've ever seen! The colours are incredible. :)
Amazing cake! I need to give this psychedelic effect a try.
this looks crazy. i love it! so glad i found you over at foodgawker. i will be frequenting this :)
love this cake - it's so crazy colourful! If I ate one of those huge lollipops I think I'd be on a serious sugar high
There are no words! Such an exciting cake! I have no idea how you managed to get that rainbow icing but it looks incredible!
I am really speechless :D
Wildly wonderfiul cake Steph
I'm happy I inspired you, and absolutely love, love, love your version of this cake. The colors are so brilliant and the addition of the lollipops and popping candy was pure genius. Anyone would be ecstatic to have this cake for their birthday.
i'm going to make this cake in a couple of days because I love making cakes for my clients and my client wants me to make this wonderful cake. cut to the chase just wondering what size cake tin I should use.
Hi Anon, you can either use 15cm (6 inch) or 18cm (7 inch) round tins, as per the recipe. I used 6 inch.
you totally outdid yourself, steph!! i hope this cake gains you tons of notoriety. you totally deserve it, girl!
I'm not sure if my comment went through so I'm trying again. want to make this amazing cake for my niece's birthday for which we are running the Color Run and it would go perfectly with the theme! Just a couple questions for you - I don't know what tingle fruit candy is, do you think pop rock candy would work okay? Also, where did you get such nice and big lollipops. The only sort of affordable ones I found were online but still not in the assortment you have here! Thanks in advance, hope to make it and have it work!
Hiya, as I mentioned in my recipe I think the equivalent candies in the US are SweeTarts or Smarties. Any tablet form of sherbert candy will work. Poprocks won't work unfortunately! I bought them from my local candy shop here in Australia, so I'm not sure where to find them online sorry! xx
I want this for my birthday :)
Whoa, this is the most gorgeous cake I've seen. You've got serious cake making talent!
How many drops of gel color did you use to get the red? And did you mix the purple yourself? My purple came out grey! This still turned out to be a beautiful cake, just not as beautiful as yours!
Hi Melissa, I can't say for sure how much I used as I adjusted it until I was happy with it. Probably about 1/4 of a tsp? I didn't mix the purple myself, I used wilton violet gel. I find it impossible to mix it myself to the right shade of purple! xx
Such a gorgeous cake! Love all your creations. been checking Noodlies list of Australian blogs and I'll definitely be visiting regularly =) Althea
In love with this cake!! :D I was plannign to do your fried chicken cake (with all ingredients bought) and THEN I saw this cake. xD
Quick questions, I was checking online and I see you have a icing sugar frosting, and then I saw white chocolate ganache one (the GIF that you linked).. In terms of consistency, is there a particular recommendation for the sugar icing? (Ive never done "runny" sugar icing to be honest, so im a bit worried).. At the same time, if I go for the white ganache (do I need to wait/refridgerate so it wont be super runny?)
Many thanks Steph! Gosh I wish you shipped international xD
Hi Liz, the royal icing should be the consistency of thick toothpaste, basically it needs to be as close to setting as possible so that it doesn't run straight off the sides of the cake. With white chocolate ganache you definitely need to let it cool to at least room temperature, or chill it to allow it to thicken slightly before using it. Hope that helps! xx

Bake for 15-25 minutes or until browned but still bendable &ndash soft enough to roll. Cool and use for sushi making.
For the roasted tamago:
Whisk all ingredients together. Heat a non-stick pan and put a teaspoon of oil. Cook egg like an omelet without filling, toast one side and then flip. Cool and slice into strips.

Snickerdoodle Crazy Cake (No eggs, butter or milk needed)
Snickerdoodle crazy cake is a quick and easy baking project that doesn’t require eggs, butter or milk. It doesn’t even need a mixing bowl! The cake is made with just pantry staples and comes out fluffy, moist and full of cinnamon flavor.
This cake is the perfect easy cake to make this weekend. I previously shared a chocolate crazy cake which I’ve already made quite a few times. Now I am sharing a snickerdoodle version.
Crazy cake was created during World War II when resources like dairy and eggs were scarce. These types of recipes are very popular right now given the current circumstances.
Crazy cake has become one of my favorite things to bake lately because it is just so easy to make and the cake tastes delicious. I would make it even if I had plenty of eggs and dairy to spare.
Like the famous malted milkshake, the butterscotch milkshake was hugely popular years ago and has now become a cult classic. It's rich, sweet and just a little salty. It has just the right balance and is especially appealing to people who enjoy treats like British puddings with treacle.
Butterscotch milkshakes are easy to create. Simply make a vanilla milkshake, and swirl in some butterscotch sauce.
9 Crazy Cocktail Concoctions
When a BLT sandwich just won't do, head to the sultry speakeasy PX in Alexandria, Virginia. Here, Bar Chef Todd Thrasher serves up a meaty mix of bacon-infused vodka, tomato water and ice cubes made from lettuce water in a glass rimmed with bacon-salt. Another option for bacon goodness: Double Down (in Las Vegas and New York City), the self-proclaimed birthplace of the bacon martini. Photo courtesy of PX Lounge.
It's amazing what a little green paste can do for your sinuses. If you're seeking a charge of horseradish, look no further than Absolut Vodka's Wasabi Martini. A combination of Absolut Vodka, lemon juice, simple syrup and wasabi paste, this is surely one martini you'll want to try sitting down. Photo courtesy of Pernod Ricard.
Chocolate Truffle Martini
It doesn't get any more decadent&mdashor eccentric&mdashthan this drink from the Donovan Bar at Brown's Hotel in London. For $120, you'll get a heady combination of black Alba truffle&ndashinfused vodka and chocolate liqueur, garnished with paper-thin truffle slices. Sip slowly, if only for your wallet's sake. Photo courtesy of Donovan Bar at Brown's Hotel.
Keith McNally's Nolita-based bar Pravda in New York City isn't short on trendiness&mdashor intense flavor when it comes to the Russian-themed menu. This martini looks demure but packs a decisive punch, combining horseradish vodka with a pickled quail egg. Photo courtesy of Pravda.
If you can't track down this nostalgic '70s candy, stumble over to KEYBAR in New York City. Among the bar's handful of signature shots, you'll find the Rolo, a super-sweet mix of the chocolate-caramel candy, vodka and other "secret" adults-only ingredients! Photo courtesy of KEYBAR.
This off-the-menu special is courtesy of Adam Seger, manager and mixologist at Chicago's Nacional 27. He soaks high-quality Iberico ham in cognac for two weeks, then mixes it with honey, cinnamon and lime juice, topped by a Manchego cheese tuile. We'll never think of "liquid lunch" the same way again. Photo courtesy of Brendan Lekan.
Luxe-lovers rejoice: You can have your caviar and drink it, too! Just head to The Russian Tea Room in midtown Manhattan, where you can order this seafood-lover's martini made of chilled Imperia Vodka, 10 grams of Hackleback caviar and olives. Photo courtesy of Igor Dukhnovskyi.
Only daredevil molecular gastronomist Richard Blais of Top Chef fame would dream of turning this Irish dish into a drink. He blended whiskey, corned beef extract and cabbage water (among other things) in order to celebrate St. Patrick's Day&hellipand hearty stomachs. Photo courtesy of Sidney Frank Importing Company.
Passion Pop Rocks Martini
We know it's a myth that pairing pop rocks with soda will make your stomach burst&mdashbut they'll definitely do something when mixed with vodka! The Whitelaw Hotel & Lounge in Miami is behind this one, which blends raspberry vodka, Dekuyper Strawberry Passion Pucker and pineapple juice, topped with the iconic '80s candy.
