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.
