Have you ever searched the web and came across something you couldn’t stop thinking about? The other day I was bored (aka avoiding work) and decided to look at different brands of sugar. I have always been the type of person that sticks to the brands I like without experimenting. Well, I came across a site on how to make sugar cubes. I found the recipe on the Imperial Sugar website. I immediately thought of using this idea for Christmas but, I could not wait that long. I had to make them right away. These are so simple and a perfect food craft for kids. I can see them adding a spoonful of sugar to each shape and pressing it down with their little fingers. I may need to borrow some kids to help me make them.
Supplies for Shamrock Sugar Cubes:
Mix all the ingredients together and press the sugar very tightly into the candy mold. Gently remove the excesses sugar.
Let the sugar cubes dry for 30 minutes before you try to remove them from the tray.
Then, carefully pop then out onto a platter or a wire rack and let them dry for an additional hour or two. If some break, it is ok. Just add a drop or so of water and put them back into the mold. There are so many different shapes of molds available that the possibilities are endless.
