* sugar molds

Posted on February 1st, 2004 by maitreya. Filed under Martha, Projects with Instructions.

Here’s a little quick craft while I’m still finishing The Scarf That Won’t End. I got these silly sugar molds from Martha by Mail a few years ago, and I always forget that I have them. Very easy: mix superfine sugar with enough water to make it stick together like wet sand. Press it firmly into the molds, flip over with some wax paper, and let dry for a while. Wait until they’re good and solid before you try to move them. This time I experimented with flavoring some of them by adding a drop of vanilla to each one after it dried. I’m reserving judgement until I try one in my coffee.

    how lovely! I would like to find these molds and add a bit of food coloring for pink flowers with yellow centers. The possibilities are endless ;-)
