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.
Step 2: Skull Shape
When you finish that, place it in a ceramic bowl and microwave it for about 3 seconds. then set the timer for another 3 seconds and nuke it. Finally, make it ten seconds then take it out. You should now have a warm, crumbly lump of sugar.
Let it cool down for about a minute before continuing.
Take your toothpick and make a mouth and teeth. Then gently press your fingers in to make hollows for the eyes. Form a chin by pressing your fingers on the lower section at an angle. Be carefull that there are no cracks on your skull.
