You can either harden it or soften it. Harden by rubbing with an ice-cube, and the scrape/ chip gently with a plastic utensil. Or soften by repeated applications of water. Place hot-water soaked kitchen paper over the sugar. Repeat many times. With a little luck the sugar may soften and begin to come off. Failing that, just continual gentle cleaning may erode it.

I use a razor blade scraper to remove burnt food from my stovetop. Then I use Cerama Bryte to make it shine.

I have a smooth top stove also and really love it; I have had many spills but never sugar.

It would seem that some of the ways to clean off burnt food would/might work with your problem.

I generally use only baking soda, water, vinegar, or Barkeepers friend on my top and one of these usually cleans beautifully. I have found that none of these causes pitting of the top while other methods may do so (rumors I have heard). Many people swear by a razor blade but I (personally) do not feel safe using a razor blade.

Most of the time I just take a dish cloth, soak it in water and put it in the microwave for 1-3 minutes.
Remove the cloth with tongs as it will be very hot. Lay the hot cloth on the food leave it for a few minutes and remove cloth and wipe away any dissolved food. I have had to do this 2 or 3 times for some spills.

Another method that has worked for me is to sprinkle a thick layer of baking soda over the spill and then pour vinegar over the baking soda. Always keep several clean rags close by to clean up any runs. This will generally cause a fizzing so wait until it stops and wipe up the vinegar and chunks of food. Repeat until all food is gone.
I think some people warm the vinegar a little but I have never tried that.

I hope someones method helps you so you can continue to enjoy your nice stove.

We bought a used smooth top stove that had several spots on top around the "burners" to the point that I thought the finish had worn off. I started dripping peroxide on the marks, sprinkled baking soda on that, then lemon essential oil. Let it set (several hours). Then misted with a vinegar spray and let sit again.

Then worked the marks with a nylon scrubbie in small circular motions. It all hasn't come up yet, but more and more comes off each time I do it.
I don't know exactly what composes these marks,but I do hope this 'recipe' helps you out!

This worked for me. Spray oven cleaner on the spots. Cover the spots with pot tops to avoid any fumes. I use glass tops so I can see when the burner turns red. Light each burner until it turns red, leave burner on for only five seconds. Let it cool down, remove the pot covers and wipe the residue away. This works the same as if you used it inside the over. I've used it with the heat but it may also work without heating the burners. Best of luck.

Sugar, even burnt sugar comes off fairly easy after it has soaked a bit. A magic eraser might be worth a try too and would not scuff the range top.

I reheated it with boiling water in a pan. It cooled then finally came off with circular motion scrubbing with hard plastic sponge. Finally! Took several attempts after the baking soda and vinegar but a few hours later it has hardened enough to dry up and come off after hearing.

The only thing I have found that cleans everything off a glass stovetop is Shaklee's Get Clean Scour Off Heavy Duty Paste. I received it as a gift from my SIL with some other cleaning products. It sat in my closet for a year.

When I could not get the "cooking rings" off my stovetop with the recommended stuff, I pulled this out to try. WOW--it looked like new after I finished. It's non-toxic also.

I discovered in order to clean my glass top stove I use Soft Scrub and an old credit card to scrape the stove. It does not scratch and works like a charm. I keep an old credit card next to my stove for this purpose. Good Luck
