Cone Sugar molds are made of long solid blocks of Granadillo 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 Piloncillo (Sugar Cane) making process.
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!
