So... the directions to make the pacifiers is today's crafty project.
Meringue powder & powdered sugar (for "glue")
1 Bag of Pep-O-Mint or Spearmint Lifesavers (Do not use the rolls. The candies are too small.)
"Jelly Belly" jellybeans (regular sized jellybeans are too big)
Cellophane and ribbons
Step 1: Make a small batch of Royal Icing (glue). Mix one cup of powdered sugar, one tablespoon of meringue powder, and two tablespoons of warm water in mixing bowl for about 5 minutes.
Step 2: Assemble your materials. Lifesavers will have to be unwrapped :-)
Step 3: Put a bit of Royal Icing "glue" on the edge of one Lifesaver. (I put my icing in a bowl and used a chopstick as my "gluing tool".)
Place the glued Lifesaver on top of another Lifesaver as shown above. Hold it for just a moment and it will stick. Royal icing is tough stuff! Place your glued Lifesavers on a cookie sheet and allow to dry for about 10-15 minutes.
Step 4: Put a drop of glue in the center hole and attach your Jelly Belly. I lined mine up along the edge of my cookie sheet in a "standing position". Allow to dry thoroughly before wrapping (15-30 minutes).
There you have it! A simple and quick project, sure to delight a mother-to-be and all of her baby shower guests.
Tomorrow will be my 14-LAYER CAKE project. I'm a little nervous about this one, but we'll see how it goes. Wish me luck!
