Full Answer

Baking Bites provides instructions for making sanding sugar at home. It is best to start with a large-grain organic sugar, because it resembles the texture of the commercial version. Stir liquid food coloring into a bowl of the sugar a few drops at a time until the desired color is reached. Allow the sugar to dry thoroughly, and then store it in a tightly sealed container.
