- 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.
Very impressive. I'm adding that snowflake mold to my wish list!ReplyDelete
