Hope all you Stealers have had your coffee and ready to rock-n-roll this morning because last time we offered these sugar molds they SOLD OUT IN A HOUR! So stop reading and add ‘em to your cart while we have some left!!
Don't you just LOVE FOUND objects? Well we do!! Today's deal isn't quite as old but is a true to form piece of history! So the exact same process and materials that were used in the 1900s were used to create these one of a kind pieces! We aren't kidding around, even the same exact families are hand-crafting these molds! Yep, we know it is SUPER cool!
These handcrafted sugar molds come to us straight from Mexico and are so versatile! We just had to put together a pinterest board to give you some ideas! They are great as candle holders, beautiful center pieces, small plants(perfect for succulents & herbs), office organizers(think pencils, pens, scissors, etc), bathroom supplies' organizers, utensil holder... Be creative!
Sugar molds are made of long solid blocks of wood with a series of holes into which raw brown sugar cane syrup could be poured. Once it dried, the syrup formed raw sugar cones that would be wrapped in paper and sold to consumers. The cones were easier to transport and store, and at the time more refined sugar processing methods had not yet been developed.
Spanning back to medieval times and continuing through the 19th century, brown sugar was sold almost solely in cone shape from a sugar mold. The sugar had to be chipped off from the cone and then sifted. These sugar cones can still be bought in Mexico and these molds are still used as a part of the tequila making process. Ahh we love a piece with so much history!
Oh and how could we forget to mention the price! These true to form handcrafted pieces of history will usually cost you an arm and a leg but not today! We were able to offer these at a price that will be sure to blow your socks off!
