Hi - It's easy to make gems from isomalt. Go to www.cakeplay.com. Under their "Information" tab, on the right-hand side, you'll see an instruction sheet on how to make gems. Good luck!

All you need, is a super clean pan, bottle of water (not tap) and a thermometer that reaches high temps. Isomalt ia super easy! There are tons of great links with temp ranges and tricks. Just be careful not to spill it. Good luck icon_smile.gif

Make sure you know which kind you have though. Some isomalt is all ready to go, and you just melt it, but some of it needs to be cooked first, like described above.
