I’ve got a really easy DIY for you today – these heart shaped sugar cubes. I was looking for an easy craft to do this week with my oldest daughter, and as I was rummaging about in our kitchen drawers I stumbled upon my heart shaped mould, which immediately grabbed her attention. She’s in a pink phase right now, and nothing else would do apart from this bright pink mould, so I had to come up with something.
The idea of making heart shaped chocolates over a bain marie with a four year old seemed more than a little fraught with danger, shall we say, so I managed to get her to settle on making these heart shaped sugar cubes. Much less danger, but still the same sweet delight!
I’m a little late for Valentine’s Day (life with a newborn means I never have an idea of what date it is!) but these heart shaped sugar cubes would make for a sweet zero waste gift idea, homemade wedding favour, or fun activity for kids. Or even just a fun 2 minute way to brighten up your afternoon tea!
To call this a DIY is perhaps over egging the pudding a little. as there’s nothing to it really – it only needs a few minutes of your time and some sugar! It also requires zero skill level – it’s almost foolproof (just don’t add too much water!).

I’m not the most crafty person in the world, but this was well within my comfort level, my daughter had fun, and we were both were really pleased with how the sugar cubes came out!
Now to put the kettle on for a cup of tea!
