Expert Tips

To make homemade colored sugar, add sugar and a drop of food color to a small food-storage plastic bag. Knead sugar with fingers on the outside of the bag until the color distributes evenly. Add additional food color to desired color.

To get sugar to stick to the icing, sprinkle the sugar on immediately after spreading icing on the mini king cakes.
