Making Mosaic tiles out of jolly ranchers candy

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I know I am not the first person to discover this technique, but I thought I would share this anyway. I wanted to make "glass tiles" for a cake I'm making this weekend (Hanukkah menorah). First I made a mold out of tin foil. I kind of squished it together to make something that looked like squares. I sprayed the tin foil lightly with oil. Then I smashed up the jolly ranchers and put the bits in the tin foil. I melted them in my toaster oven on 300 degrees for approx. 4 - 5 minutes. WATCH CAREFULLY - if they heat up too much they will turn a nasty color! Remove carefully and let them cool (I popped them in the freezer). Then I gently removed them. They look more like mosaic than actual tile, but I'm pretty happy with the result. I've posted pictures for you to see the steps.

Cool. I bet these look great when poured into the Wilton brownie bite silicone pan.

Yes, I bet it would have nice clean edges. I needed something smaller though for my project.

The link to the picture says "it doesn't exist." Is there another link?

The CC administrators decided to delete my pictures because it wasn't a cake or cookie. But I have since uploaded my finished product (which is a cake) and here is the link : http://cakecentral.com/modules.php?name=gallery&file=displayimage&pid=1884243

Thanks.
