    Add the sugar to the pan and hold it over a medium sized flame.

    Keep stirring the sugar so it doesn't burn. Let it melt completely.

    Add a pinch of baking soda and keep stirring. It will change colour to a beautiful caramel and will rise.

    Pour this mixture on to the prepped baking sheet. The sugar sprinkled on the sheet prevents the candy from sticking to the paper.

    Place the lollipop stick and flatten the mixture with a weight. I used an oiled plate. You just press gently and leave it on for 3 seconds.

    Now take a cookie cutter, any shape you like, and gently press two thirds in to get the shape. Careful not to press through completely.

    Wait to cool.
