Festive Sugar Cubes Recipe

The Western theme at our son Scott's wedding to Tammie was carried right down to the sugar cubes! I decorated the cute cubes with icing in the shape of horseshoes, cactus and cowboy hats and boots. Little details like this made their day even "sweeter".
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. + standing YIELD:60-80 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 teaspoons meringue powder
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1 cup confectioners' sugar
  • Food coloring of your choice
  • Pastry bag or heavy-duty resealable plastic bag
  • Assorted small pastry tips
  • 60 to 80 sugar cubes

Directions

  • 1. In a small bowl, combine meringue powder and water. Beat on high speed until well mixed. Add confectioners' sugar; beat until the mixture is fluffy and soft peaks form. Tint icing with food coloring or divide in half and tint each portion.
  • 2. Cut a small hole in the corner of pastry or plastic bag; insert pastry tip. Fill bag with icing; pipe each sugar cube with a design. Let sugar cubes dry at room temperature for 8 hours or overnight before storing in airtight containers. Yield: 60-80 servings.
