Hard candy - cooked sugar.

melted sugar on diamond candy molds or same amount of Isomalt and Karol syrup, the difference is melted sugar will absorb moisture and loose its shape, on the other hand Isomalt and karol syrup will not loose its shape if expose to moisture.

I haven't been able to find a supplier of Isomalt...does anyone know who I can order from that here in the state? All the places online when I do a search they are all over seas or in Canada icon_sad.gif

Thank you! I live in a very rural area. Hobby Lobby & Michaels are our "cake suppy" stores. Even the new independant supply store in the city doesn't have it. When I made the trip hoping they had Isomalt the owner looked at me totally confused. She had no idea what it was. So safe to say, if the owner doesn't know what it is chances are they don't carry it LOL!

Well, it's funny you posted this at this particular time. I'm currently working on a wedding cake with just this material as part of the decorations!

I think I can help you out girl! First let me say that this decoration is one of the hardest to find. That said, I will now share with you some of the sites that I have found and the one I ultimately ordered from in the end. I'll include the site that sells the Isomalt(Woohoo! Someone that actually has it!), and the ones with the diamonds. I purchased mine in the end, because I live in WA state and we are at about 100% humidity here right now(sarcasim icon_razz.gif) and I was afraid they wouldn't come out for me like they should. So here you are and good luck to you!

Hope this helps! Good luck, I just love this idea in cake decorating! I'm hoping to be able to start learning how to make sugar bubbles next!!!

OH...did I forget to list the most important one??? LOL Silly me! Forgive me, I've been waiting 3 days for someone to come and repair our furnace here and he showed up right when I was posting my list...(BTW, we have heat now...thank goodness!)

Here it is and a pic of what they look like for real when you get them. I ordered the small ones that come 225 in a set.

I got mine somewhere in the UK, may have been the site below, but I can't remember.

They are soo cool. I wish they weren't so expensive I'd put them on anything & everything!! I have them on my orchid & dragonfly cake in my pics. Have to use a pair of tweezers on them so they don't look cloudy. I'm surprised they come in the jar, mine are separated because it says if they touch they get cloudy too.

These were imported from france and then resold at this store. The other place I was looking at from the UK was in Scotland. I'm glad I found Jester becasue ordering directly from the UK can take up to 6 weeks to ship. I e-mailed the scotland company to find out.
