Sugar Bubbles

post #1 of 163
Thread Starter 
Ok so I am posting pics of Sugar Bubbles and how I blow them. I say this is how "I" do it because this is how I taught myself how to make them. In this case I used Isomalt. They sell isomalt for $15.00 a bag at www.sweetc.com

I heat it to a little under 340* F because it continues to cook a bit.
NOTE: Everyone knows that sugar work can be dangerous and you can get severe burns from it. I poured hot sugar on my hand a couple of weeks ago and it was not fun!
I hope you enjoy the pics I have posted!
I have had many people PM me and it was just easier to show you how I do them! I use a blow torch to heat up my scissors and I cut them off.

Note: I noticed that if you enclose the bubble completely they will burst or pop. The air trapped inside keeps inflating! So I poke a little hole on the bottom!

WOW! Thanks! This is great. I want to try it sometime, so I'm putting this on my "watch" list.

Maybe you could get an article posted in the articles section? I don't think there's anything like this there.

Thanks!

Most people use a blood pressure bulb pump. Basically you place a piece of warm sugar on the end of the pump. You slowly add air to imflate to bubble. Blowing or a use of a fan will help cool down the bubble. Let me know if you have more questions! Thanks!

My son has been asking me how to do this too. He wants me to teach him once i learn. Only if i could get the courage to do so, maybe later on in life i'll take up a class on how to.
any tips for avoiding getting burnt?

Just pay attention. I cannot remember what I was doing but was distracted and picked up a silicone mold full of hot sugar. It is and instant blister!

I use Isomalt for humidity. I take three parts isomalt to one part water. I boil this to about 330*-335*F. Everyone adds coloring at different times. Some do it after the cooking process others during at a certain temp. I add it right away to try to cook out the moisture of the gel color. Gel colors work for me nicely! Do not go all the way to 340*F it will keep "cooking" after it is off the heat. I pour on a Silpat and let sit for a bit and start pulling to add sheen to it. Hope this was helpful!! Now remember this is how I do it and others have there way of doing it!!
