Ballerina pops



  • I used some ready-made icing I had left in the fridge for this project but you could also use sugar syrup or make your own icing.
  • The pink sugar crystals were in a container of multiple sprinkles. You could also use jelly crystals if you can't find these.
  • This recipe was created by Jennifer Cheung for Kidspot, Australia's best recipe finder.
