How to Make Flavored Sugar Cubes

Updated on April 14, 2015

I recently hosted a tea party for a friend who had retired. She did not want a big party, just a few friends enjoying themselves at a low-key event.

Trying to come up with little touches that would make the afternoon special, I decided to add flavored sugar cubes. I thought they would look lovely on a table filled with cakes, cookies and tea.

You don't see sugar cubes very often anymore. When I was a kid, I always looked forward to going to a nice restaurant because I knew that there'd be a bowl of them on the table, and that I was going to get a sweet treat at the end of the meal.

Flavored sugar cubes are incredibly easy to make. They can be made in any shape, color or flavor, and add a unique homemade touch to any event. Just follow these simple instructions.

Supplies needed

  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 tablespoon water
  • Liquid flavoring (I use hard candy flavoring since it is stronger than some extracts)
  • Food color ( I use the gel type as it produces really vibrant colors without adding too much liquid to the mixture)
  • Candy molds (Try to find shallow ones)

Depending on the size of your mold, this recipe makes about 15 sugar cubes. It can easily be doubled.

Pour sugar into a cup or bowl

I use natural flavoring when making these. A little goes a long way, so add slowly and taste. I add 1/8 teaspoon at a time.

For these cubes, I used orange and lemon flavors. Both are delicious in tea, and the orange is especially awesome in a cup of coffee.

Do you remember sugar cubes?

Add food coloring and stir

I like to use gel food coloring. You won't need much of it. I only dipped my fork about 1/8 of an inch into the coloring and got this bright yellow.

One thing to keep in mind about the coloring is that as the sugar cubes dry, the color get lighter.

Mix completely. The mixture should be the consistency of slightly wet sand. It won't set well if it is too dry, so add a drop of water at a time to moisten if needed.

The first sugar cube was invented in Moravia in 1843, by a man named Jakub Krystof Rad.

Candy molds from craft or baking stores are perfect for this project. Use ones that are not too deep or the cubes will take a long time to dry.

  • Spoon some of the sugar into each shape and press firmly into the mold. Use adequate pressure and make sure that the shape is completely filled. I just use a clean finger to do this, but you can also use the back of a spoon or another object.
  • Use a slightly damp paper towel or clean paint brush to wipe off any excess sugar around the shapes.
  • Set aside to dry. I leave my molds out overnight so the cubes are nice and hard when I remove them.
  • Once they are out of the mold, gently clean off the edges.
  • Serve immediately or store in an airtight container.

Be careful when taking the cubes out of the molds. While they are fairly hard when done, they can break if not handled gently. My daughter loves this part because she gets to sample the ones that break.

My friend loved her retirement party and the flavored sugar cubes were a hit. Like some of the other guests, she had not seen them in many years and remembered them fondly. As a keepsake, I wrapped up the remaining cubes in a pretty box and gave them to her.

For an added touch of elegance at your next special occasion, try making sugar cubes. They are sure to be a hit.

      That was interesting. I have never heard of colored sugar cubes. My grandma always had a box of them for when I would visit. I wonder how many sugar cubes I ate as a kid? It's amazing I'm still alive. LOL

      Thanks for the idea and I hope you are well my friend.

      Those are very pretty! We still use a sugar cubes a lot here, and they are still in lots of restaurants in the south. They even have them in bowls on buffet tables.

      I love the idea of flavored sugar cubes. I've made the shaped ones before for Halloween, but never thought to flavor them! You wrote this just in time...I've been looking for fun things to make for our Halloween party this year. These will be perfect, because we are all tea drinkers. Voting, sharing and more!

      This is amazing! My grandmother used to buy square sugar cubes at the store every December. She made igloos out of them and made a little snow scene on a mirror for her Christmas table. I don't recall seeing any growing up, but I heard about them from my relatives.

      Thanks so much Suzie! I appreciate all of the support. I am sure you could use ice cube trays, but it would take a lot longer to dry and may be harder to get out. Another option is miniature cookie cutters. Cut out shapes directly on the drying tray. Have a great day.

      I do remember sugar cubes in restaurants. I suppose the board of health and new regulations along those lines are why you never see them anymore. However, you can still buy boxes of them in the grocery store.

      That said, these delightful colored and flavored ones are so much nicer to look at! Loved the easy instructions and great photos!

      Hi DzyMsLizzy - As a child I always loved sugar cubes at a restaurant. They made it feel so fancy. I think that is why a lot of people enjoyed this project, especially those of us who remember sugar cubes. I'm glad they still sell them in the stores. Thanks so much for stopping by and for all of your support.

      I have memories of going to my dad's office as a little kid and helping myself to sugar cubes from the coffee station. Lol

      If I gave teas these days, I'd try these now. As it is, these would be sweet for Valentine's Day. Thanks for posting. (Btw, the hub is gorgeous.)
