In this first part of my two-video Cast Sugar 101 series, I show how to cast (aka mold) granulated sugar into a variety of shapes, which can then be used to create stunning cake separators, keepsake boxes and bottles, and other favors. (Yes, this is the same technique used to make the shells in those classic panorama Easter eggs with windows and little vignettes inside.) In addition to providing the basic recipe, I also share tips about which molds work best, how to evenly tint the sugar, and when and how to carve out windows and inner cavities.
