i gave this a 4 star rating, b/c i changed the recipe alot. but thought it might be helpful to those who have problems with the sugar holding together... i used one whipped egg white, 3.5 C sugar, .5 C powdered sugar and it held together beautifully! it seems too dry at first, but just keep mixing and it comes together!

This recipe is great !! I also tried using just water and a drop of food coloring. This made some beautiful sugar shapes when I found an old spoon with a shell shaped bowl. Demitasse spoons work well too for smaller shapes. The key is the consistency of the sugar. It should be like wet sand but kind of dryish. You only need a few drops of water to knead into the sugar. If it is too wet it will stick to the mold even if you use cornstarch. If using egg white, I would just add a little at a time until I obtained the desired consistency. Experiment with the consistency so that is holds together after releasing from the mold. Be sure your mold is clean. You may have to clean it between the molding process. Just take the spoon with molded sugar, tap it onto a cookie sheet to release the molded sugar and pop it in the oven. If the shapes are thicker like mine were, you may need to leave it in the oven longer at 200 degrees. This works great. This is really very easy once you get the hang of it.

I give this recipe 0 stars! It is the worst I have tried in a long time. I couldn't wait to wash my hands of sugar to get up here to write. The sugar did not stay together to unmold so I kept adding egg whites to the tune of 5 and IT STILL WOULD NOT HOLD THE SHAPE! I WASTED 5lbs af sugar and 5 eggs to do this. I am an accomplished baker who does not shy away from any decorative task and I could not make this work. Eeesch. Terrible directions!

Often, where sugar work is concerned, you need to adjust your ratios to account for the humidity. I don't know if that was an issue for some reviewers, but I thought I'd mention it. Also, instead of using plain 'white sugar' you might find that superfine sugar works better (for the same reason that others used part conf's sugar). Adding more egg whites would only make it more 'slippery' - adding a tiny bit of water would have been better, if more moisture was needed, since it would slightly 'melt' the sugar and help it to meld/bond better.

I gave this 4 stars because Nellie did and I used her recipe. I used the sugar for small candy size fleur de lis molds that I was using to decorate a cake. It worked very well with the small molds but when I tried to use it on the larger sucker sized molds I couldn't get them out of the molds w/out cracking or breaking even after dusting the mold w/ cornstarch.
