Mardi Gras King’s Cake~ Make Your Own Colored Sugar!

There are a lot of King’s cakes recipes out there for Mardi Gras, and they all seem to have something in common- the deliciously colored sugar sprinkled on top! I personally think that what they charge for colored sugar in those little spice jars from the baking section is practically highway robbery, so I make my own! 🙂

Here’s how you do it. Put some regular, white sugar into a tupperware container with a lid, and drip a few drops of your desired food coloring into it.

Put the lid onto the container, and shake it until the color is fully mixed with the sugar.

Remove the lid to reveal your very own
(and very cheap) colored sugar!

Voila! Colored sugar, easy peasy!
