Some people just buy small mirrors. You can have them cut to special shapes if you go to a shop selling supplies for stained glass windows, or a shop that does window repairs. 


To make a mirror from sugar, you have to have one perfectly flat side to your sugar. VERY difficult--then you can spray the back with silver edible paint.


Or else you use a clean piece of aluminum foil, rolled VERY flat on a hard surface, and pour the sugar onto that without any oil or other film on the foil. Keep the foil on the back of the sugar--a mirror needs both layers. Then you will get some reflective appearance.
