Step 1: Making the sugar mix
First measure out your one cup of sugar in a metal mixing bowl (can be any old bowl). Then get a small spood and put a few drops of water in. Keep adding the water in very small portions and mixing with your hands until your sugar feels like DAMP sand on a beach. NOT WET sand.
