Sugar Hearts – Homemade Sugar Cubes

I’ll be on our local network KATU’s  morning show, AMNW next week sharing a few Valentines Day ideas.  One idea I’ve been dying to try, is making sugar hearts.  Ever since I saw it on Skip to My Lou, I’ve tucked into the back of my mind to try sometime.  Well the time has come!

Sugar Molding

Cindy does a great tutorial that takes you through step by step.  These babies are SO easy! What a great idea for weddings, baby showers, parties.  Of course you can choose any shape you want.  Choose your event, choose your shape.homemade sugar cubes- sugar hearts

I went to my local craft store and bought the heart mold.  I found it in the candy making supplies for $1.99. Cindy’s tutorial used a food coloring paste, but after spending way too much time searching up and down the isles, I figured the food coloring gel would work just the same.sugar hearts

I came home and immediately made them.  At first I thought the food coloring gel wasn’t going to mix in, but after a small panic attack, and more stirring, it mixed in just fine. It really does only take a pin drop amount.

I’m kind of excited to try this using other shapes.  Besides using in tea, wouldn’t it look darling on top of oatmeal?

I thought the soft pink hearts would go perfectly with my Valentine Printables from last year made my sugar hearts
