What is Homemade Coloured Sugar?

Coloured sugar is basically and obviously sugar with a different colour. Internet is an interesting trap. I was watching some videos when one of the suggestions by dear YouTube told me about Homemade Coloured Sugar. I saw it and dismissed it because it was too simple to be true. But the curious me… did not let it go so easily and I ended up making it. It is a very versatile ingredient. I generally use it on the cup cake icing, on the cookies, yog urt, fruits etc. But before you decide to bake with the sugar i.e. sugar coated cookies etc, do not risk the whole batch. First bake 1 cookie to be sure. Use Homemade Coloured Sugar to decorate the mock tail glasses or glasses for drinks or shakes. Just dip the rim of the glass in any liquid (that compliments your drink) and then in some coloured sugar. I did this for serving custard milkshake and it was a great hit.

Let’s talk about the ingredients for homemade coloured sugar

I have used castor sugar. You can use granulated sugar. I used the gel colours. You can use some other colours such as liquid ones. At times the sugar gets lumps. Just let it dry for some time and it will be free flowing.

Hi! I am CA Vini Mehta. A Chartered Accountant by profession, a food blogger by passion! First of all, I would like to thank you for stopping by at Viniscookbook, I hope you have a good time. Here, yo...u will find the recipes which have been tried, at times re-tried in my kitchen and relished on the dining table. I am mother of two kids and the wife of a person with a high and selective taste sense, so basically anything, before finding its place on the blog, has many levels to cross and clear. This journey started a couple of years back. Before that I was making the most usual kind of food. The only experiment used to be asking my mother how to make something new or different☺. Then, one day, I tried a recipe for butter cookies. And they did not get to go in the container as they were over before I could store them. That day I was introduced to the joy of experimenting with recipes. And I loved everything else that followed especially garnishing and photographing food. I am still not well versed with the photography dos and don’ts but I love to experiment and learn, be it photography or cooking. Hope you too enjoy this journey as much as I do☺! Stay healthy, stay tuned!.
