kincaellan (or anyone who knows): I'd love to know how you do the swirls you have on your sugar pieces. I saw them on your site and would love to know if you use some molds. Could you sell me some? Or is it blown sugar? icon_redface.gif It looks clear so I thought it might be poured sugar. I love them and think they would look great as decoration for my cakes. I sometimes add sugar butterflies and other things to my cakes, but these look great to give them some height.

Thanks. I would love to someday take one of your classes, but it seems as if I am too far away. Someday. I can dream. icon_biggrin.gif

I'm not sure which piece you're referring to, but in the description for the angel it is said they are pulled sugar. You can always send a PM asking, most CCers are good about answering questions.

Lorenaalvarez,

The swirls are clear sugar. I cut them from the sugar mass and then pull them into a long tapered rope. As they cool I shape them into the spiral finally melting a wire into the fat end once it's cooled. Ta Da

I hope that helps and sorry for the late post. You can try Private Messaging me for a faster response.
