Making your own vegan sugar cubes is an essential for any tea party. We’ve been doing this for years, and while it’s so easy that it doesn’t need a recipe, I figured I should document it anyway. I can’t take credit for this brilliant idea. We first discovered it at Crown & Crumpet in San Francisco during Jessica’s surprise birthday tea party. They hide a pink and red sugar heart inside each sugar bowl.
You can make them any colors you want, and even make them different flavors. If your tea is a light color, then this might even color your tea! If you like purple food, you might also like my purple lemonade.
DIY Vegan Sugar Cubes Ingredients

- vegan food coloring (I used 3 drops of this wilton violet gel color )
DIY Vegan Sugar Cubes Directions
Measure ½ cup of sugar into a small bowl.
Add 1 teaspoon of water and mix thoroughly.
Add 3 drops of wilton violet gel color .
Mix until the color is even.
Spoon a heaping teaspoon into each cubby of a silicone mold. I used an ice cube mold.

Remove from molds and bring to your next tea party!
