I’ve been thinking about making sugar cubes for a while now and just love it when a project like this turns out so perfectly! It’s surprisingly easy to make these sugar cubes, so let’s get right to it…

Start with approximately 1 cup of sugar and slowly add water, no more than a teaspoon at a time, stirring to mix. Do this until sugar is a paste-like consistency. Make sure your water has cooled completely, otherwise the sugar will melt.

Fill candy molds with the sugar-water paste, pressing down gently with your fingers to pack it in.

Allow to sit over night to dry.

Carefully remove from molds.


I particularly like the brown and white sugar cubes that are shaped like shells. They will be great to serve with iced tea by the pool this Summer.

    Always looking for something unique – like plastic spiders in the ice cube tray (Halloween). Love this for entertaining especially the star – might boost someone’s morale to know they are stellar. TY .
