Isomalt gems using Isomalt sticks

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I am trying to make some Isomalt gems with CakePlay Isomalt sticks to go on a royal icing tiara. I can't seem to get the gems out of the candy molds without them sticking at least a little bit. The gems all are a little broken here or there. Are there any tips for prepping the mold, how long to wait before removing them, or anything else I can do to get the gems to look better? Thanks!

Try spraying some cooking spray into the molds so that the gems come out when they cool off. Some of the molds stick to the isomalt if you don't grease them a little first. You just want to spray the molds then wipe them off with a paper towel so that there aren't pools of spray sitting in the cavities, and they're just greasy.

Thank you for the advice! A well greased mold and letting them cool for a very long time did the trick. Now if I can can only figure out how to transport these incredibly fragile royal icing tiaras I'll be all set. Thanks!

Lots of polyester batting and a large box!

Awesome advice, I can't wait to try it to make my daughter a bling-diva cake for her twentieth birthday. Great ideas on this site.
