How to Make Homemade Sugar Cubes

Mix 1/2 cup sugar with 1 teaspoon water and tiny (pin drop) bit of paste food coloring. Mix well. It will feel like damp sand.

Firmly press the sugar into the heart mold.

Carefully flip mold over and remove the hearts. It is a bit tricky during the flip but,  I found it easiest to fill the mold and immediately remove so I could keep making the sugar cubes. Placing something flat on the mold and flipping all together at once made it a bit easier. Wipe mold between fillings.

Allow sugar cubes to dry and harden. Overnight is best. It doesn’t take long to have beautiful homemade sugar cubes!

  1. Tami that sounds good, unless you use clear vanilla it would color the sugar. I also wonder if the alcohol in the extract will effect it. If you give it a go will you let us know?

  2. I’m LOVING this!!! I need to make cake decorations, and these would be perfect in seashell molds!!!
    Don’t know if you respond to questions, but here it goes…. does anybody know what it would taste like to use vanilla extract in place of the water in this recipe? I’m thinking it would be fantastic! Thoughts?!

  3. Ooh. I just learned that I could put a satchet of lavender buds in my sugar and make lavender sugar! And now I can make it into pretty shapes too. Very excited. I just found a wonderful Christmas present for my tea drinking friends.

  4. The first time I served sugar cubes to my granddaughters, they were amazed and asked me how I had made them. They are 10 and 6 years now and this should knock their sox off . I can’t wait to make them 🙂
