Extra-Strength Sugar Mold Recipe

It's easy to make sparkling cake trims, ornaments, party favors, panoramic eggs and colored sugar cubes using this recipe.


5 cups granulated sugar
1 lightly stirred egg white


Place sugar in a mixing bowl. Make a well, then add egg white. Add coloring (see Making Sugar Molds). Mix by hand, kneading for about 1 minute until sugar is moistened and feels and packs like wet sand, making sure there are no lumps. Keep sugar mixture covered with damp cloth when not in use. For a sparkly effect, add 1/4 teaspoon of gum arabic to mixture. For further information see Making Sugar Molds.
