Sugar Shapes

This is an easy and elegant way to serve sugar at your holiday or everyday table. My children and I started making these a few years ago and now regularly enjoy these shaped and colorful cubes for our coffee and tea.

With Easter and family gatherings just a few days away definitely make time for this easy preparation.

Candy or Chocolate Molds

Color your water to desired shades. Add 2 teaspoons of water to 1 cup of sugar, combine until it's the consistency of wet sand. Pack moistened sugar into plastic mold trays (with shapes 1 to 1 1/2 inches wide available at Joanns Fabrics & Crafts or kitchen-supply stores). Scrape level with a spatula. Let harden. Turn plastic molds over gently on cookie sheet. They should release easily. Store in an airtight container in a cool, dry place.
