A Homespun Year...Decorated sugar cubes...



 
A sweet gift or table favour that is so do-able, it's ridiculous...


...bought sugar cubes, with ready made fondant roses attached with just a dab of icing...
 
 
...or grab some food colour pens, and get arty with some basic flowers, spiral rosettes and leaf embellishments.

 
...arrange them Mosaic style in a recycled chocolate box...
 


... a darling gift for a foodie, or something lovely on the table for a High Tea.
 
Sweet, yes?

  3. Dear Mimi:
    What a perfect gift for a ea lover. I actually sold thee for years in my shop before retirement. They were very expensive to buy so this idea is great and I thank you for sharing and linking.

    1. I didn't know you'd had a shop Bernideen. I should have guessed from your passion for teacups. Love, Mimi xxx

  19. Dear Mimi,

    These are lovely, I especially like the roses. A friend of mine makes her own sugar cubes using sugar, a bit of water to moisten then she packs the mixture into heart shaped ice block moulds. The result is gorgeous. xx
