Sugar Cone Revisited

Two posts down, I made a sugar cone.  While the results were okay, it really wasn't quite what I had envisioned.  So I went through the many links I have bookmarked, and found another method.  Here's a link to that. Oodlekadoodle Primitives ~ Sugar Cones Tutorial  I won't lie, I had my doubts that it would work.  I didn't think it would stay together with such a little amount of water,  but it did and it's harden up nicely.  Now, I just need to find the right mold and I'll be 100% satisfied.  I'd like something a little smaller on top. The lighting in the photos are courtesy of the setting sun tonight.  So bright and warm.  Nothing like the temps out there.

Here's a close up.  I wanted to be able to see the granules of the sugar.  That didn't happen with the other one.


  1. This turned out fabulous!!!
    Im going to have to find time to try this.

  3. Hi Lori,
    I think these look wonderful! Can I ask what you used for a mold this time?
    I'm not sure exactly what shape you are looking for, but I have used a plastic toy cone (a smaller, kid size version of the kind used for road construction)with good results. I found mine in the toy department at Walmart.
    Good luck!

  4. Hi Rhonda, I used a paper take-out coffee cup. The shape your describing sounds exactly like the one I've got in mind. I still want the cone shape, just more narrow on the top. Thanks so much for the tip!
