Jackie,
What about using melted Jolly Ranchers in a silicon mould?

I am new but i was thinking after reading this post that some of the sugar pieces that can not work into the cake because they may be damaged could work as extra table decorations. That would tie the whole theme together. I live in Washington and I need to go see that place icon_biggrin.gif
I just hope that I can make something to go on the cake!!

When I tried that, I set my jewels off to the side for a bout a week. The room wasn't hot, the room wasn't humid. When i went to get them, they were sticky and melty. Sooooo, that's not a good idea either unfortunately. icon_sad.gif

For those of you that already have experience with pulled sugar, I have started a thread here:
http://www.cakecentral.com/cake-decorating-ftopicp-6260666.html#6260666 to discuss the logistics and application of creating and shipping sugar sculptures

However it works out, that's a great idea for everyone to be involved somehow! I don't know and am very scared of blown sugar. It would be truly be a very special cake no matter what!

What if...instead of pulled sugar, gumpaste could be used to create the shapes, and then as the pieces were being placed on the cake they could be painted w/ either piping gel or something that would create shine. I know it wouldn't look exactly like pulled sugar, but if we're dealing with travel issues with pulled sugar, that would be an acceptable Plan B.

Just a thought, I won't be offended if you think it's a lousy idea!

What about fondant/gumpaste "pulled sugar" Using gumpaste, luster dusts, edible paint to look like a pulled sugar ornament but would be sturdier, last longer and ship better. I'm not sure what they would look like but it may look nice, mixed in with real pulled sugar creations. I love Dale Chiluly's art glass. If you ever go to Vegas some of the casinos there have his art on display. Good luck with your wedding and your massive wedding cake creation.

Wow! If we can pull this off it is going to be stunning! I have no idea how to do pulled sugar, but I would love to learn. Count me in!

What if you sent the completed piece in a box packed with silica gel. Would that keep the moisture from causing damage?

I think this is a terrific idea. I have tried to keep a reputation of a buttercream only decorator....but I sure would go for some pulled sugar work.

my total experience with pulled sugar was a one day class at wilton so I'm certainly no expert but it was in the summer and the 2 pieces i created didn't even get home (1 hour drive) intact. it was so humid they sorta melted into a colored glob.

I'd worry if that would happen to us.

I wonder if maybe the idea of recplicating the glass parts with gumpaste might work. we can get lots of special effects with luster dust etc.

BTW Congratulations princess.gifparty.gifhat1.gif
