What is the meaning of "sugary blade" in the context below

The mould comes with four hilts in total—two of Darth Vader's lightsaber and two of Luke Skywalker's—and a couple of AAA batteries is all that's needed to light them up once the sugary blade is frozen.

I think your text refers to this item.

https://www.amazon.co.uk/Star-Wars-Glowing-Lightsaber-Maker/dp/B00FCVPEM6

A set of Star Wars Glowing Ice Pop makers, were a person makes their own ice lollies with pretend lightsaber hilts as handles.
In which case '"sugary blade" refers to the frozen liquid that forms the blade if the lightsaber, presumably made from a sugary liquid like fruit juice which is frozen, (Although you could freeze a sugar free liquid as well).

I lack the imagination for a witty signature.

Ouch!
The writer is confusing "a couple of" with "a couple", meaning "two people who are dating, engaged or married", which is generally singular, and cannot be followed by "of". "A couple of" is plural.
