    Hi All, thanks a lot for all your suggestions... the procedure is as follows:
    Sugar - 1/2 cup
    Milk - 1/4th cup to remove impurities and to give white colour
    Water - 1/4 cup
    Food colour- ur choice
    Melt the sugar and the water.. when sugar has completely dissolved and bubbles start to come add little bit of the milk. THe impurities will start floating by the sides. Filter this using a muslin cloth or Tea filter, clean the kadai and pour the mixture again and heat it. Once again when bubble starts to come, pour the remaining milk. If again impurities are there filter again...else continue to boil this mixture till we get to a stage where when a drop of this solution is added to a paper or a small plate, it should solidify within couple of seconds. At this stage remove the sugar solution from fire and pour it into the mould. PLease soak the moulds in water for an hour before you start the preparation. After pouring the sugar solution, leave it undisturbed for 10-15 mins then scrap the excess sugar over the top and gently remove it from the moulds. If required, you can add food colours after the addition of milk (second time). Hope this helps.

    Hi Bipa,

    You will get them at Vijaya Stores. This is on the Mada street, Mylapore. In fact, it is available at a lot of shops on this street.

    Cheers

    It wont be possible to eat them much. Probably a bite. It is used more for the decoration purposes!

    Thanks Lalitha!Please post a picture of the mould, and your finished product too.

    Thanks

    Cindhu and Archana will have to make the sugar firgures again as on that day due to lot of preparation and endless guests I couldn't take snaps of the finished product :(... let me ask if the brides side have pictures.. I will post the pictures of the achu in a day or two. Archana, the saree and dhoti are in my to do list along with decorated aarathi plate.
