Edible Glass in 30 seconds

Featured
This fun and easy technique will only take you about 30 seconds to melt the isomalt sticks. Pour it into any mold and you will have  beautiful , edible glasslike pieces to top on cupcakes, cakes , or even make your own sculpure. You can use the melted glass to "glue" the pieces together. You can even buy the silicone and cut it to shape letters for wedding cake toppers and more.





Important info and tips:

*Warning:  If the hot liquid touches tour skin it will stick and burn
*Wear specialty gloves
*Wear long sleave shirt
*Do not do this in a hurry take your time and be safe
*Do not do around small children or dogs
*Any unused product cand be remelted
*I like to pour unused melted product into the jewels mold, it is a perfect size to store to reuse later
*Glass will get cloudy if exposed to humidty
*Store in a airtight container(also cake play sells special silica gel packet to keep the looking great)
*If you finished pieces are a little cloudy, just lightly skim the piece with a creme brulee torch and it will be shiny and beautiful
* At cakeplay.com they have very helpful videos

Isomalt is a sugar alcohol that can cause gastric problems if you have too much. That doesn't concern me in itself, but I wonder if one of these is enough to trigger those problems. If not, I totally wanna make these.

Cool, let me know if it works for you. they have isomalt in powder form also but it is not as quick or convenient as the sticks that i use.
