Want to add some punch to your dinner parties? Or make a political statement at Sunday lunch? In this final recipe video of the Pleasant Vices series Tasha demonstrates how to make a sugar sculpture to adorn your table. The history of sugar sculpture is one of status, power and storytelling, so what forms you choose to make and what tales you choose to tell are up to you - but as Tasha will show you it takes just three ingredients to create a decoration that could last for centuries.

Recipe: 454g icing sugar, 28g gum tragacanth, 61ml rosewater.

To find out more about sugar you can read Tasha’s article on the British Museum blog, or go to her website AVM Curiosities to see what else she's been up to.
