    Bridget's "Make Your Own Sanding Sugar"

    I just saw this on Bridget's Bake at 350 blog about making your own sanding sugar! Who knew? All these years I kept buying different color sugars that didn't quite match!

    I actually did this myself last week. I wanted sanding sugar that represented "sand" to go on a foot (summer themed basket). I added just a teeny tiny bit of terracotta and I'll be darned if it didn't look just like sand on the foot . I had asked for brown sanding sugar at a local cake decorating supply store recently and she said she had never seen it but told me how easy it would be to make my own. It was!! Wish I would have known this BEFORE I purchased a bunch of different colors, but I am sure it will still get used!
