Can you burn the sugar cube?

Ever tried burning a sugar cube?

If not, try NOW!

I know you will not succeed. Actually a sugar cube never burns at normal condition.

To burn the sugar cube, you require a little cigarette ashes. Rub the ashes to a corner of the cube and burn the corner.

Now it will burn with a flame!

Why this happens?
Cigarette ashes work as the catalyst to start the reaction.
