In The Food Substitutions Bible, David Joachim says two 1/2-inch (1 cm) cubes equal 1 teaspoon (5 ml). I think he's talking about the smaller, square cubes, not the rectangular, brick-shape ones. But I think that FnF is correct, and that one of those equals 1 teaspoon (5 ml).

Well, Notorious Stickler, you are right.
After reading your post I pulled out my (ancient) boxes of sugar cubes-you know, the ones I had to buy for a food shoot where the client [I]had[I] to see sugar cubes with the cup of tea that was the prop for the little petit fours?!?:crazy:
I crushed them and measured. The little cubes (1/2 inch cubed) measure 1/2 a teaspoon. The little bricks-1 teaspoon if the ends weren't broken off too badly.

What can I do with these boxes that gather dust in my cupboard year after year? I use some at Christmas when decorating gingerbread houses, but sheesh, it would be nice to be able to buy smaller quantities.

Actually use them in your tea - or coffee?

Sorry, I don't drink my tea or coffee sweetened; and after my last experience with absinthe (see the "homemade absinthe" thread) can't tolerate the stuff.

Maybe an igloo.....hmmmmmm;)

howabout
make some royal icing or use fondant and make coloured(generally not too bright) little decorations, flowers,ribbons etc and stick them on to the sugar cubes with royal icing , let them dry and then package themnicely and add a bag of nice coffee/tea or a nice tin of hot chocolate mix as a gift for freinds, family, clients.
you can get little buttons that are all different shapes and they make great molds or patterns which might make it easier to do different shapes

the icing/fondant just dissolves like the sugar cubes, and if you use pastel colours it doesnt change the colour of the tea/coffee/hot chocolate
