Using raw sugar will enhance icng giving it a caramel taste which goes so beautifully with the dates and figs. if you don't like caramel taste...then use white sugar.

i have also made these as mini muffins...great for a finish to a dinner party with Coffees...you can also replace the 2 tablespons of warm water with 2 tblespoons of warm expresso from the coffee machine for caramel/ coffee icing tmrc_emoticons.)
