I would guess that it IS sugar........but I believe someone on here made a cake JUST like that!! Maybe even THAT cake! there is also a really cool one with a can of coca-cola pouring into a big glass that looks soooooo cool (can't find it though) and that looks a lot like the "tea" in the photo you posted

I'm planning on doing something very similar to the tea cake, except with a small bottle of Gentleman Jack whiskey for my boyfriend's 21st. I'm super excited.

Here are the instructions that lu9129 gave me for the pouring tea/pop effect. She said I could pass it on, so here it is....

The rock candy is liquid. I made it. (Recipe is in the recipe section now I hope.)

Once you have cooked the rock candy. I just mixed in the color of food coloring I wanted. And also flavoring. Then I poured it onto a cookie sheet. I took my metal dowel and held both ends and placed in the candy. When the candy got to the stretchy consistency, I pulled the dowel up and started to hand mold it the way I wanted it to look. (Be very careful here because the candy is still pretty warm to touch.) I'm not sure how to connect it to the teapot. I am assuming that the spout is gumpaste. If so personally I would place the bent part of the dowel (do not cover the ends of the dowel with rock candy.) into the spout and hot glue it. For the cup I would either try (and I say try because I honestly don't know how this will work) pouring some of the candy into the gumpast cup and swirl it around. I don't know if this will melt it or not. The candy is at 380 degrees, so it can pretty much melt anything (including your fingers!!!! experience speaking) or maybe try letting it get into that stretchy stage and mold it into the cup.

Several people have asked for the recipe for the Rock Candy that I used on my Coke cake. I am going to put it here and attempt to put it in the recipe section.

Rock Candy

3 3/4 cups sugar
1 1/2 cups light corn syrup
1 cup water
1/2 to 1 tsp flavoring of choice.

Mix sugar, corn syrup and water in large heavy saucepan. Stir over medium heat until sugar dissolves. Boil...without stirring until temp reaches 310F, or until hard crack stage. Remove from heat. Carefully with wire whisk add food coloring and flavor or choice. Pour onto pan sprayed with pam. Cool. Break into pieces.
If you want to mold it like I did for the coke cake, let it set until it gets to a stretchy stage. Be careful though, because you can still get burned by touching it. (When adding flavoring, do not get close to the pan because the fumes will knock you on you butt!!! lol. )

Enjoy!

Lu
