This DIY sugar cube tutorial by Nifty Thrifty Things is a dream come true for hostesses everywhere.
Constantly entertaining is a lot of pressure; you never want to become formulaic in your approach (roast chicken, again?). These neat little sugar cubes are a fun way to mix up the way your serve coffee and tea. Best of all: there's little to no effort required to get these cute designs. All you need is granulated sugar, water, a teaspoon, bowl and an ice cube tray or candy mold. Gradually add water to a 1/2 cup of sugar until you've achieved a consistency similar to paste. Pour the paste into the ice-cube tray (or mold), filling it halfway. Seal and let dry overnight.
These sugar cubes will also make a cute party favor the next time you're a guest at someone else's shindig!
