A fun way to have festive sugar for a party or gathering is to make your own cubes. This guide is about making homemade sugar cubes.
I would like to know if anyone knows how to make sugar cubes? My DH only likes to use the cubes and they can be expensive.
Thanks for your help.

Regular sugar with a little warm water - should be clumpy not runny. Pack into molds, ice cube trays, etc. until they dry out. You can add food coloring to the water before you mix it to make them decorative. You can buy molds at any online bakery supply store. They are very inexpensive. :)
Add little water to the sugar till it is about a 3 to 1 ratio. Then let sit in the house or in sun house is recommended.
I'll try to make the sugar cubes with a mini ice cube mold. I'm inviting my friends from school for a tea party in my house in Lima. I haven't seen my friends for decades so I want to make everything special and also very english.
Just mix the food coloring (if desired) with sugar and a scant amount of water and use a mold like a small cookie cutter like a miniature cookie cutter.
I have a cake book that has a recipe for heart shaped pastel sugar cubes and that's what they say to do.
I saw a good idea to make coloured pink heart sugar cubes. I am having a baby shower for my son and decided to make blue sugar cubes, since they're having a boy. It's a good idea for Valentine's day or parties in general.
Just use 1/2 cup of sugar, a teaspoon of water and a drop of food colouring. Mix together well. Put into molds of your choice. Let dry and dump out onto a tray.
