how do you make realistic ice cubes for a beer bucket cake - Page 2

post #16 of 19
I just made a bunch of sugar ice this weekend. My first few batches were amber colored but then as the PP said, don't heat it to the hard crack stage. I was afraid it wouldn't hold it's shape, but it did fine. Now if you're making sugar bottles, you do have to wait for the hard crack stage otherwise the bottles will end up melting. At least mine did anyway icon_rolleyes.gif

I used equal amounts of sugar and light corn syrup. I poured mine in regular mini ice cube trays to set and they were fine. I took a chance that the trays may melt but they didn't so I guess I got lucky there.

J-Black, I'm not sure if you're still on CC but just wanted to thank you for your recipe and clear instructions on ice- cubes. I've made them more than once and they are always perfect. Thanks;-D
