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 agree it needs context, but 'to slop around' is a verb. It means liquid moving around in a container which is moving.
So it could be what they mean, possibly. -

The horizon is an image, an idea in his head, not a solid idea.

What horizon, where - that is all in context.
But this is a metaphor, not a literal description.


Quote:

Slop
1.2 (of liquid) move within a container, noisily slapping against the sides.
‘water slopped around in the bottom of the boat’
More example sentences
‘Ramirez turned over, a wave of water slopping against the marbled side of the bath.’
‘Creamy soup slopped over the side as he stared into the middle distance.’
‘She felt that receiving the child food directly into little personal bowls was undignified and wasteful, since much of it slopped over the sides.’
‘With a lunge of his hand he trusted a large glass of ale at Kriseis, which slopped over the side and onto her face and clothes.’



But 'to slop' is messy and unwanted. 'To slosh' can be more fun, but 'to slop' is just unwanted and dirty. So it is a very strange thing to say. If that is what they meant to say.


Thank you
