Festive Sugar Cubes

Total Time

Prep: 15 min. + standing


60-80 servings

The Western theme at our son Scott's wedding to Tammie was carried right down to the sugar cubes! I decorated the cute cubes with icing in the shape of horseshoes, cactus and cowboy hats and boots. Little details like this made their day even "sweeter".


  • 2 teaspoons meringue powder
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1 cup confectioners' sugar
  • Food coloring of your choice
  • Pastry bag or heavy-duty resealable plastic bag
  • Assorted small pastry tips
  • 60 to 80 sugar cubes


  1. In a small bowl, combine meringue powder and water. Beat on high speed until well mixed. Add confectioners' sugar; beat until the mixture is fluffy and soft peaks form. Tint icing with food coloring or divide in half and tint each portion.
  2. Cut a small hole in the corner of pastry or plastic bag; insert pastry tip. Fill bag with icing; pipe each sugar cube with a design. Let sugar cubes dry at room temperature for 8 hours or overnight before storing in airtight containers.
Editor's Note: Meringue powder can be found in cake decorating supply stores or by mail order.
