How to make "ice" for a beer cooler cake?

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
I have to do a cake for a client who wants a beer cooler cake. She asked that the lid on the cooler be open so that you can see "cans of beer" inside. How can I do the ice? I don't know that I can get any isomalt. Not sure what else I could use. Any suggestions?

Unflavored Jello. They carry it in most grocery stores, sometimes with the jelly & jams. Just make it as the directions say & then cut it in small squares. Makes great ice & holds up well! icon_smile.gif

You can use sugar and water but it will be slightly yellow. Isomalt will give you clear ice. I used it to make the ice in the beer barrell cake in my photos.

I used sugar and corn syrup and boiled to hard crack stage, then poured into silicone ice cube trays and let cool. The only silicone trays I could find had a dice design on them, but I did love how the ice cooled and looked like it was sweating. here is a link to my cake. http://cakecentral.com/gallery/1828287

I make it all the time. I found a recipe in American Cake many years ago. Use vodka in place of water. use only enough to moisten the sugar. heat to hard crack, pour onto crumples foil. when cool break it up. I tried it in the microwave. Did not work, must do stove top

Do you need to do anything to the silicone mold such as treat it with oil before you pour in the sugar?
