DIY Project: How to Color Sugar

Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

In yesterday's post, I described how to make edible decorations for cocktail glasses.
 

 

When I was prepping the photo shoot, I knew I wanted to rim the edge of the glass with sugar crystals to complete the look. But I only had white. Then I remembered the very fine color-your-own-sprinkles tutorial over at Such Pretty Things, and wondered if the same technique would work on sugar.

I put some of the regular sugar crystals in a small bowl, added just the tiniest bit of petal dust (same color I used on the butterfly, forconsistency), and stirred.
 

 

 
It worked brilliantly! No need to stock dozens of colors of colored sugar any more, when I can mix up exactly the color I want when I need it.
