We were talking yesterday about fancy teacups, and so today I thought I’d jump off that topic and delve a little deeper into the cup. Yesterday we made really easy candles in our sweet little cups from the thrift store, but today we’re actually thinking about and planning for a tea party!
Plain ol’ sugar just won’t do with such precious cups, so we’re going to get creative and make our own cute sugar cubes. Can you even believe how adorable these are?! And, as always, easy. I do easy well.
Here’s what you’ll need to gather (and it’s not much!):
- granulated white and/or brown sugar
- candy molds
Step 1: Pour about 1/2 cup of sugar into a bowl. Using a teaspoon, pour smal amounts of water on the sugar, little by little mixing until you have a paste-like consistency. Make sure the sugar doesn’t melt!
Step 2: Fill the candy molds about halfway full with the sugary paste, pressing firmly into the mold. Let it dry overnight and carefully remove the adorable lumps.
Step 3: Pick up little cellophane bags at the craft store and tie closed with a ribbon to give as a Christmas gift.
