Sugar Cube Castle

If the wicked witch in Hansel and Gretel had lived in an apartment block in the city rather than a cottage in the woods, it would surely be in this sugar cube castle.

Chances are the starving waifs might not be tempted to eat it and thus fall into the wicked cannibal witch’s trap however, because it is not all that pretty.

It even has a lighted candle in the middle which makes it a perfectly safe Christmas centerpiece and not a fire hazard at all. This is because sugar does not burn.

It melts, which is an entirely different chemical process altogether.
