Has anyone used the Sassie Shot isomalt melting gun? - Page 2

post #16 of 65
Shocker. I was also told this and then I was told that the manufacturer had not produced them although Get Sassie didn't know why. I would hope that when/if they do ship the guns that they would at the very least send it with several boxes of the isomalt sticks (1 for every month of delay would make me happier) to "thank" us for our patience.Although, I will admit that I am losing my patience quickly at this point.

Well, I'm glad to see this thread. I've been twiddling my thumbs here since October. I agree some isomalt sticks would certainly soothe my ruffled feathers. thumbs_up.gif

Might work while you're waiting for your gun.



I saw a decorator on TV use these to pour isomalt. Makes sense to me...and a lot cheaper!!

If I am ever on life support, unplug me...

Then plug me back in.  See if that works!

Be VERY CAREFUL using the silicone cups for melted isomalt -- they are flimsy by nature and you don't want a flimsy container to suddenly fold on you, spilling hot melted sugar all over you. I use a 1 Cup glass pyrex measuring cup -- works just the same and NO spillage issues.

Just thought others might like the latest update. I emailed the Get Sassie company AGAIN....and this was the reply....
"At this point we still have not received the Sugar Melting Guns into inventory. We are expecting them within the next few weeks and they will be shipped out immediately."

Anyone else have any more news regarding this?

I am definitely canceling my order and demanding a refund after the latest email I got after I suggested compensting/thanking us for our time and inconvenience through giving us some of the isomalt sticks when they do ship the gun. The answer from Beth to that request was a flat out no (despite the fact that Amy said they would do something via FB, when I askedabout his earlier),and it was a little terse with a deinitely snarky tone. I cannot believe the customer service with this company. They will never get another penny from me.

By the way, Beth also said orders placed now were hoping to be shipped by May...MAY!!!

Does a anyone have a variable heat glue gun and isomalt sticks you could try and give us feedback? I think this would be the perfect solution to make diamonds! They are so expensive, and I have a cake to do in October that is covered with them.

I have a very cheap variable heat gun and some cake play isomalt sticks. How are you thinking of making the diamonds. If you can give me some direction, I will try it.

I was thinking of getting the mold putty from Michael's, and a pack of crystals. Make the putty, then stick the tops of the crystals in, as many as you can til it sets up. Then put the sticks in the gun on low. I would turn it off when the sticks are melted, then back on if it starts stiffenening, to keep it from burning.

Oh, obviously, then you would put a dot of isomalt in the mold, then pop them out when they set. A little oil to make them shiny. Global Sugar Art sells diamond sugar studs that have round backs, they say they are better than the point ones. I'd love to try it myself, but I would have to buy everything.

Excellent! If it works, nobody will be buying them anymore! I wish I had the money to do it myself, I am still trying to reimburse our family for the money I spent making the bakery...

I know that is not what the topic is completely about but i just made some gems and i want them to sparkle like real gems on white fondant. I tried putting silver highlighting powder (not luster dust), super pearl luster dust white glitter on the backs of them. the glitter gave it the best glimmer, but it still was not shiny enough. When i tried heating up the front of the gems to remove the very tiny bubbles it melted the facets. I used Pam on the side and rubbed the silicone mold with it (this was just to be on the safe side.)
I just purchased the ck gem molds for hard candy i will spray those as well but just by rubbing it on as to avoid the air from spraying it on it to avoid bubbles. I have heard that you can put they hard candy molds in the oven to help with the bubbles but i am not sure how that works does anyone else.
Know as far as the isomalt i have the bagged of sugar. I do have some sticks but i like the crystals of it mixed with distilled water it did really well with staying clear. so i have been experimenting with the sugar a little bit that's why this is all on here. i poured the extra sugar into silicone bowls so i can just remelt it in the microwave instead of purchasing more of the sticks. money saver i think i payed 5.00 or 6.00 for 1 lb of isomalt sugar, 12.00 for the sticks and there was not very much per stick.

Does anyone know how i can change what i have tried so far?

Please, if you do try this be very very careful. Or better yet, don't try at all! A caker in my one of my cake groups had one explode on her. She ended up with 3rd degree burns on her arms and face. I have heard others have had similar experiences so please use caution. (This was not her first time using and speculation was it was due to uneven heating)
