Sweet Hearts For A Sweetheart

Sugar cubes are functional, they look ok in a sugar bowl and it's fun to be able to use sugar tongs but let's face it pretty they aint, so I decided to make my some pretty ones of my own.

I put some caster sugar into a freezer bag, added a few drops of pink food colouring and mixed the two together until I achieved the right shade
I then added a couple of drops of water, mixed again and pressed the glittery rubble into a heart shaped sweet mould
I placed the mould into a warm oven to dry and pressed out the finished heart shapes and here they are
They're a bit on the large side, one for the two lump brigade I feel but I will look out for some smaller moulds perhaps in seasonal shapes, I think it would be nice to have snowflake shaped sugar lumps for Christmas.

Oh and please don't forget to enter my Hummingbird Bakery giveaway, closes Friday 5th August (tomorrow!) at 8pm
