recipe for poured sugar for beer bottles

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I have attempted to search in the recipe and forums. Will someone please share the recipe with me for poured sugar to make sugar beer bottles and ice?

This is what I found:

directions, using 1/2 c. sugar and 1/2 c. light corn syrup.

I didn't have a 2 c. measuring cup, so I used a 4 c.,....cup.

I wanted a dark brown bottle, so I added a smidge of Wilton's brown coloring and stirred it into the mix.

Then I nuked it, just like SweetResults said, 50% power for 6 minutes, 100% power for 2 minutes.

I had hubby on stand by to help me out. He held the clay mold in one hand, and as I poured the sugar into the mold, he rotated the bottle mold. Pour some, spin, pour some, spin....until it was completely covered. I used the entire mix for one bottle and it doesn't seem too thick.

Here's the funny part...I used colored modeling clay for my clay mold. The heat from the sugar being poured ni started to melt the colored clay. My latex mold is now rainbow colored.

Next time, I will line the clay mold with some aluminum foil so the mold doesn't get funky.

I don't have pics of us actually pouring the sugar, but I did take some of what it looks like in the mold. As soon as I am sure it's hardened, I'll post the pics. (if it turns out well..LOL)

ok silly question...could some one tell me are we using regular sugar here for the beer bottle molds?

Yes, regular sugar. If you don't want your mixture to turn brown use 1/2 cup corn syrup and 1 cup sugar, microwave for 6 minutes on high and it will come out clear. But keep an eye on it as all microwaves are different. This is a great mixture for making ice. You can also add coloring once it has been cooked/
