Homemade Sanding Sugar





















Came across this when i was searching for vanilla sugar recipe. I felt that i am so lucky to come across it. I love sprinkles but i just can't buy every colour off the shelf,right? And normally they come in rather big packaging(storage problem!).

Okay,anyway,this is so easy to make. I can have any coloured sugar as and when i need.I just did 2 colours this morning and i loved the results! More colours to come!! I need more small jars! Yippie!

Makes:
  • 10 teaspoons (i am using this amount,you can add or lessen amount according to your needs.)

You will need:
  • 10 teaspoons sugar (i use coarse sugar.)
  • 1 drop of gel colouring (add more or less according to your preference.)
  • 1 clean and dry jar

The Preparation:
  1. Pour sugar into a zip lock bag.
  2. Add gel colouring.
  3. Rub the bag to mix well.
  4. Pour coloured sugar (they will appear a little damp) onto a lined baking tray.
  5. Level it with a spatula.

The Baking:
  1. Bake in a preheated oven for about 5 minutes at 180°C. *
  2. Remove from oven,break the crust. **
  3. Sieve sugar onto another parchment paper.
  4. Cool and store in jar.
*Keep a lookout,you just want to remove moisture from the sugar,not melt.
**The sugar will crust a little,just break them with a spatula.
