I got inspired for this project from this cookbook that my Uncle Doug bought for me. Have you ever seen these books (there is 2 of them)? They are ADORABLE and so inspiring and it is all done with stuff the average Jane has in the kitchen unlike pretty much everything Martha comes up with (no offense to Martha-I love her just the same even though she is totally impractical for average America). Well anyway in this book it shows you how to make colored sugar. Being the skeptic that I am I couldn't believe it was actually possible so I tried it and guess what....it works and not only does it work it is FABULOUS, FABULOUS, FABULOUS!!!!!.
I wanted to create some cookies that had a bit of a sparkly look to them (to add to my spider plates) and this sugar was perfect!!!
Here is what I did.
I put a scoop of sugar in a zip lock bag. I didn't measure-just remember that a little goes a long way so you really don't need to make that much. I only had gel food coloring in my house but it worked perfect so no worries.
