Colored Sanding Sugar for Cookie & Cupcake Decorating
10 mins (prep 5, cooking 5)
3 ingredients
1 servings
This isn't a recipe so much as it is a method. If you keep coarse sugar (turbinado, or AA-grade large crystal coarse sugar) around and don't want to buy colored sugar, this is the method for making colored sanding sugar-- gel food dye is the best for this but I also included instructions for the liquid food coloring you can pick up in most grocery stores. (1 serving = 1 tablespoon)
