Turbinado sugar, or “raw sugar”, is simply fresh-cut sugar cane that didn’t get bleached and processed like regular white table sugar. It retains more of the original caramel flavor and has a lovely golden color. It has a coarse texture and doesn’t dissolve as quickly as regular sugar. This makes it perfect for sprinkling on top of treats or whipped cream or even rimming drink glasses with sugar.
Flavor drops are great for making candy, but you can also add them to sparkling water to make flavored soda. Some people use them to flavor homemade lip balm. There’s so much you can do with just a drop or two of these intense flavorings.
If you like to make lollipops or cakepops, you’ll need some lollipop sticks. You can use reusable lollipop sticks, which are plastic but cut down on waste because you can wash them and reuse them so many times. You also have the option of regular paper sticks.
Cream of Tartar
If you like to make candy or lollipops of any sort, you’ll need some candy molds. I like silicone the best because it’s naturally non-stick and easy to work with. You can find all types and shapes and colors of silicone candy molds at Amazon.
