DIY: Sugar hearts

So as we all know, Valentines Day is just around the corner. Now I've never celebrated Valentines day but when I came across this cute sugar cube idea, I just had to give it a try. And who knows maybe someone who does celebrate Valentines day will think it's a cute idea for their loved one. 

What you'll need:
Heart shape mold
Sugar
Water
A spoon
Fork
Gel food colouring


Method:

Add 1/2 cup of sugar, 3/4 tsp of water, and a bit of food colouring until it forms a paste. 

Pack the sugar into the heart molds. Make sure to level the sugar so the hearts are flat. Now let it sit in the molds for about an hour.

Once your sugar hearts have been in the mold for about an hour, turn them over onto parchment paper. Let the sugar hearts sit untouched for a few more hours, giving them time to harden.

There you have it heart shaped sugar cubes.
