The cube sugar can make the pyramids?

2016-01-19  By  pierce
When we studied pyramids, we read several books about how pyramids were built. The children wrote a paragraph or two about pyramids to add to their Ancient Egypt notebooks. While the blocks were out, the kids decided to build a step pyramid. Then the kids all insisted that they wanted to make sugar cube pyramids.
I had never bought sugar cubes before. I can’t believe I spent $8 for two boxes of sugar cubes. I asked my kids how badly they wanted to make pyramids out of sugar cubes, and they said, “Very badly,” which is why I got them.
The children glued their pyramids together with Elmer’s glue, but the pyramids didn’t stay together. The smaller ones stayed stuck together, but the larger the pyramid, the more it fell apart. Before it was a complete catastrophe, I poured sand over the sugar cube pyramids, and they looked much more dramatic and beautiful.
These need to harden before you use them.  You can either allow them to air dry for a day or two or you can speed up the process by placing them in a 200 degree oven for about ten minutes.  Once they cool, they will become super hard - just like what sugar cubes machine can provide for you.
Pour your sugar mixture out onto a smooth, non-stick surface (I used parchment paper on my counter top) and press it down firmly with your hands, a rolling pin, or the bottom of a plate.  The idea is to get the sugar as compacted as possible.  The thickness is somewhat determined by the depth of your cookie cutters, but I think about 1/2 an inch works quite well.
If you have read the article now, I am sure that you want to make pyramids with cube sugar by yourself. We could help you with all kinds of cube sugar.
