For me, a homemade gift needs to be chill to make. If it’s not, then I’ll just buy something, you know? These homemade sugar cubes couldn’t be simpler because they require two ingredients: sugar AND water (which comes out of the tap).
So really, they only require one and you most likely have sugar in your pantry right this very second.
I got this idea when I was walking through Harrod’s last month with and saw the most adorable sugar cubes evrrrr. There were heart sugar cubes and sphere sugar cubes and sugar cubes shaped like snowflakes. I wanted to buy them ALL and almost did until I saw the price tag of 30 pounds. Umm…yeah no.
How to Make Homemade Sugar Cubes
Turns out sugar cubes are the simplest thing to make in the world; I’m so glad I decided to DIY this sucker instead of fall for that Harrod’s trap (seriously tho that person is very smart to sell sugar and water for $30—respect!).
The only think you do need to buy is a silicon candy mold. You may have one already, if you don’t, don’t worry because they’re not expensive.
I used this candy mold but you can find others if you like.
Simply, mix together sugar and a bit of water together (exact measurements are below) until it resembles wet sand. Then pack the silicon mold very tightly.
Allow the sugar cubes to dry overnight. And then pop them out of silicon mold.
