I’ve always loved pastels. I know they haven’t always been considered stylish, but I don’t care. Piles of anything in sugared almond hues, bring me so much joy!
So even though I don’t take sugar in my tea, I take great pleasure in this sweet Valentine’s craft.
You Will Need
Caster sugar (start with 200g)
Gel food colouring
Teeny tiny love heart cutter
Grease proof paper
A shallow dish or baking tray
- Pop the sugar in a large bowl and add a tea spoonful of water at a time, stirring well until the sugar holds together. You’re looking for the kind of consistency you’d need to build a sand castle
- If you would like coloured sugar lumps like mine, then add the tiniest pin prick of gel food colouring before you press the sugar into a tray. Otherwise leave plain
- Press the sugar into a shallow dish or tray. Try to create a depth of around 5-7mm
- Use the cutter to make love hearts and gently transfer them onto the greaseproof paper to dry.
Anyone who says that these aren’t adorable is just wrong!
Love Rachel ❤️
