Make Your Own Homemade Colored Sugars

Wednesday, December 10, 2014

This is the perfect win win during the Holiday, they always seem to be out of colored sugars I need. These colored sugars are quick and easy. The first thing you need to do is start saving your glass jars. Don't throw away those small jars. Save them for your sugars they are perfect for shaking this mixture in and storing and you can make every color of the rainbow for all your baking needs

Seriously Easy To Do




I don't know how many times I went to the store to get a certain color for my cookie garnishes and they were out of that color.



One year I finally got sick of beating the holiday rush of bakers and made all my own colors.



I made orange, blue, green, red and then some lighter color like pink and light blue.

Make Colors for all Holidays and Events



You can make any color you want as long as you save your little glass jars all year to store them in, they will keep well for a long long time.



I still have some left from last Christmas and it's now September already!



I try to make all the color of the holiday during the year I will need it for.


I made the cookies for my new grandsons baby shower.








These are a basic slice and bake homemade cookie recipe rolled into homemade colored blue sugar before baking with two colors of dough for a boys baby shower.

Whether you use this colored sugar to garnish your cakes or cookies, it sure will be a nice colorful touch.


The colored sugars are much more economical to make homemade.

Make Your Own Homemade Colored Sugars

Save money making your own colored sugars. All you need is some old glass jars, sugar and let's get started for all your Holiday baking needs.

ingredients:

Food coloring of choice
2/3 cups regular white sugar

glass jar

instructions:

Here's what I do:

Place the sugar in a clear glass dry jar. 

Add 2 drops of food coloring of choice and shake, add one more drop at a time shaking vigorously until you achieve the desired color of course the more you add the darker the color start out light for pastels.

I shake this until the color is evenly distributed.

I also spread it out on wax paper and a cookie sheet to dry first either several hours or over night. Place it back in the jar put the lid on top until ready to use.

Easy and saves lots of money!

Enjoy!

  3. Perfect timing. Was wondering what to do to fancy up my refrigerator cookie rolls. Got some gold colored sugar in France but don't want to use it all. This way I can do some special purple trims this year with the gold. Thanks!
