Not cookies, but you could put cookies in these!

In this first part of my two-video Cast Sugar 101 series, I show how to cast (aka mold) granulated sugar into a variety of shapes, which can then be used to create sculptural cake separators, keepsake containers, and other favors. (Yes, this is the same technique used to make the shells in those classic panorama Easter eggs with windows and little vignettes inside.) In addition to providing the basic recipe, I also share tips about which molds work best, how to evenly tint the sugar, and when and how to carve out windows and inner cavities.


Stay tuned for Part 2, which provides creative ways to use leftover carved-out sugar, and my separate cast sugar container video, which shows how to put these pieces together.

And here's Part 2 - what to do with any leftover sugar from Part 1. (Since this video isn't cookie-related, I'm just linking off to it rather than uploading it separately to the site.) I like the thought of bundling these cubes (in various flavors) with tea or coffee as hostess or housewarming gifts.
