- Isomalt stick from Cake Play
- Hot pot for melting isomalt
- Silicone cupcake liner - I use it to melt the isomalt
- Some fun cake sprinkles
- Snowflake quins
- Blow torch - not in pic
First I broke up the isomalt stick and placed it in the silicone cup. Microwave in 15-20 second increments until all melted.
Sprinkle some of the red sugar and snowflake quins into the mold. Carefully pinch the silicone cup - be gentle and cautious so that you do not spill the hot isomalt on your fingers. Pour a steady stream into the mold.
Set mold aside for a bit to cool and firm up.
Once set and barely warm to the touch begin to gently pull the silicone away from the isomalt.
On this particular mold I was worried about the centers pulling through the isomalt so I gave it some help.
When removed from the mold there were tiny surface imperfections. To fix this I got out my trusty blow torch and very quickly ran it over the surface.
Let the snowflake sit and cool for a bit before touching.
One way to display the snowflake - loop a string through and let it hang. Doesn't it sparkle?
You can use the melting pot - with a broken isomalt stick melted to dip the bottom of the snowflake....
Set the snowflake where you want it and hold still while it cools.
