Notes

Use cookie cutters to cut shapes. Use colored sugar mixture to make more interesting sweets. For instance, shape the white mix into mice and rabbits, color some sugar mixture pink and use it to make ears.

Candy drops or silver balls can make eyes and ears. Use candy string to make tails for the mice and sugar cotton to make tails for the rabbits.

Very young kids can help, any child who plays with dough can make sugar figures.
