    I adore this. AND I am in total AWE of your MANY uses for ice cube trays!

      I’m quite surprised I haven’t done a cocktail post. The ice cube shapes alone would be better than the drink.

    I love this set, Alex! The sugar-cubes are sooo sweet, and I love the rosette detail. As a tea-lover, this would be a perfect gift for me!

    Being a former teacher, I think she’s going to love the tea set rather than the mug! Those sugar hearts- A-dor-a-ble!

      I’m very glad to hear you say that! Each year I take this random social media poll of what a good teacher gift is and half the time you hear LCBO gift card and then the other half say Starbucks. I figure even if she’s not a tea drinker, the gesture of it will tell her how much we appreciate all her work.

    I LOVE THESE! And I learned how easy it is to make sugar cubes. Now I won’t pass the discount table where I see the seasonal forms all the time and wish I could think of something to do with them.
    I would also like a peek at what the originals looked like before your punch broke.
    Isn’t is just amazing how our brains kick in to overdrive when we are forced to think “out of the box.”

      I alas never got around to making one of them before the punch broke. I sat down with my card stock and couldn’t even press one out. That’s when I took a screwdriver to it and all hell broke loose.

    Ooh! This looks so perfect, especially the heart shaped sugar cubes! Out of curiosity, where did you get that mold?
