Thank you for looking. Please check out my other instructables.
Step 1: All You Need Is A Few Things
mold of your choice
edible air brush paint
food gel coloring
heck you could probably even acrylic paint or spray paint if you want to use it as a non edible decoration.
Step 2: Preparing the sugar
If you want to dye your sugar before you mold it, add the food coloring in at the same time as you add the water. you will see little dark spots of color so mix real well or just make sure that those spots arent going to be seen on the mold.
Step 3: Mold the sugar
Place a plate or cardboard or something flat against the sugar/mold then flip it over and now you can see the shape of your sugar mold. Let dry for at least 5 hours.I suggest overnight just to be on the safe side.
Step 4: Decorate as desired
Airbrush it with edible airbrush paint
Cover it with frosting or royal icing and add lots of details
Use luster dust to give it soft colors (this method doesnt produce bold colors)
Piping gel and Wilton decorating icing in a tube also do good for small details.
Or maybe you already died the sugar before you molded it
I hope you have as much fun decorating with this method as much as I have.
