Sweetheart, turn the music on!

Today I was thinking about all the lovely people that come here and leave me nice comments and put smiles on my face! You people are such sweethearts! So in your honor I've made sweethearts! Literaly, I've made you sweet hearts made out of sugar. Aren't they... well, sweet?

These are so easy to make and make such nice gifts. It's just sugar wet with a bit of water, until it gets like wet sand. Then it's pressed onto candy molds and let to dry. I've used a silicone heart mold, but they work fine with hard molds as well. And you can also color the sugar to match holidays, your china or even your clothes.

Speaking of sweethearts, Emiline tagged me for a Music Meme.

"List seven songs you are into right now. No matter what the genre, whether they have words, or even if they’re not any good, but they must be songs you’re really enjoying now, shaping your summer (or whatever season). Post these instructions in your blog along with your 7 songs. Then tag 7 other people to see what they’re listening to."

Adding to this, another sweetheart, Teanna gave me the Yum-yum award! I have received that award before, but it's nice to have it again so I can spread the love to five others one more time. Thanks Teanna!

So here it goes, meme and awards 2 in 1:

Dedicated to Emiline because she tagged me and because I know she has big dreams!

For Teanna because she was so nice giving me the award!

And now the awards go to...

To Katrina, because she's a meravigliosa creaura (wonderful creature) herself, having 4 litlle boys and baking yummy things as well as healthy stuff.

To Lisa because she's cool and everything she does looks good!

To Madeleine because she's such a dedicate blogger and allways has nice tips.

To Lina because I love to learn about japanese food with her and chasing her on her travelings. She gives great food reports of where she goes.

To Suzana, my fellow portuguese, because she cooks like a superstar!

If you're bored and like music consider yourself tagged for this music meme.

And it's a good thing I'm leaving you all this music, I won't be arround for a few days, so you'll have something to entertain yourself.

I'm off to Barcelona for a short vacation, I hope to go to all the trendy patisseries and chocolate shops they have there. I'll tell you about it when I came back! Have a nice week!

What a great idea with the sugar cubes! I never have dinner parties, but if I WAS to have one, I would definitely be making these to go with coffee.

Have a great time in Barcelona!

Those little sugar hearts are adorable. Can you use food dye to color the sugar? I want to make these with my alphabet candy mold. Wouldn't that be sooo cute for a child's birthday?

¡Enhorabuena por el premio! Y muchas gracia por el truco de los azucarillos con formas. Desde que los vi en las tiendas delicatessen y en el blog de Garbacita me preguntaba si se podrían hacer y cómo y ¡¡ tú me has dado la solución !!
