Handcrafted Lollipops Fuse Stunning Images Into Edible Works of Art

Artisanal confectionery shop LIQ NYC creates lollipops that are as beautiful as they are tasty. The novelty treats are edible works of art, infusing famous paintings, the cosmos, and scenes from nature into the hard-candy orbs.Their striking color and bold designs are a special way to celebrate a birthday, graduation, or other milestone—and until they’re consumed, the candy integrates its whimsy into the decor.

LIQ NYC creates lollipops in a variety of flavors like cherry and cotton candy. Many of their pops are made with just four ingredients—cane sugar, filtered water, cream of tartar, and a dash of salt, which gives them a transparent appearance so that its exquisite images can shine. Other edibles are made with Belgian white chocolate that acts as a blank canvas for sugar and food coloring imprints.

LIQ NYC sells their treats, including custom orders, through Etsy.
