quick diy: make your own coloured sugar

one thing we like to do a lot of is baking.... cakes, cookies, you name it we'll try it ;) the kiddos love to decorate the cupcakes, and we can get though pots and pots of sprinkles and coloured sugars {some of it ends up on the cakes - lots ends up on the side!!}

i realised it'd be easy to make our own coloured sugar and it'd be a lot cheaper too. all you need is a packet of sugar and food dye in whatever colour you like. perfect to sprinkle on cakes or cookies.

place your sugar in a bowl, and add a couple drops food colouring

mix the colouring through the sugar with your fingers until it's all mixed in.

place into air tight containers and you're done

  1. Simple; why have I never thought of that?!

    1. right?! i wish i'd thought of it before!!

  2. What a great tip! It looks at least as good as any store-bought sugar, probably even better. Those colors are really nice!

  3. Cute idea, would make the best tea party addition.

  4. Wow, I'll have to give this a try! I always have food colouring around, but never coloured sugar when I want it! Now that looks to be solved!

  5. That's awesome and so easy! One of my things to do before my next birthday (it's crept up on me and I don't have much time left!) is to bake a cake that actually tastes good so I might have to try this and it seems that you can't really go wrong with it.

  6. Awesome idea, and looks so simple! Would be a nice added touch for any dessert :)

  7. Wow,this is so simple! Thanks for sharing.
