Owl Baby Shower- Pink and White Water Bottles

Cute candy pacifiers for take home favor.

Ingredients

Scale
1 roll cherry lifesaver candies
1 roll butterscotch lifesaver candies
Pink royal icing*
Pink gummies with rounded ends

Royal Icing Recipe:

  • 1/3 cup water
  • 3 to 4 T. meringue powder (more for humid climates)
  • ½ cup Crisco shortening (can cut this down in humid climates)
  • 4 ½ cups powdered sugar (1 lb. 3 oz. If you have a scale)
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract (use clear vanilla if you want a pure white icing)
  • ¼ tsp. almond extract

Instructions

  1. Using royal icing as the glue, attach gummie to cherry lifesaver, let harden.
  2. Next apply icing to back side of cherry candy and attach butterscotch candy as shown.
  3. Let dry 24 hours before inserting ribbon.

Royal Icing Instructions:

  1. Place half of the powdered sugar and the meringue powder in the bowl of an electric mixer. Whisk together well.
  2. Turn on mixer (use whip attachment) and, while motor is running, slowly stream in the water.
  3. Mix until everything is incorporated. Turn mixer to high speed and whip until stiff peaks form.
  4. Add flavorings and mix well. Change to paddle attachment (for stand mixer) or dough hook (for Bosch).
  5. If using a hand mixer, use the same beaters you were using before. Add remaining powdered sugar and shortening and whip for 2-3 minutes more.
 Note: Don’t skimp on the whipping time after adding the shortening. You really need to whip it well to prevent separation later.

Notes

Royal Icing will dry hard and a better source for “glue”.  Recipe makes 3 cups.  Cut recipe in half for 20 pacifiers.
