Im going to be making my husband ( a CR lover) a cake for his birthday in february in the shape of a Crown Royal bottle and I'd like to make some hard candy icecubes and CR in a glass. I was going to use one of the glasses that came with a bottle but I need help on how to make the hard candy look like ice cubes.

I use glacier mints which are a cube shaped clear mint. Do you have a similar sweet you could use

An alternative to hard candy would be making them out of very firm gelatin. Use unflavored gelatin, add a very small amount of boiling water and put it in a small container so you can cut cubes.

This is so funny. I had to do a double take! My son-in-law's name is Rocky and he drinks Crown and rides a Harley. icon_lol.gif I am going to try making a Crown bottle next.
You just have to be careful with the sugar when making the ice because it does turn amber when you cook it long enough to harden. Try using Isomalt or the candy mints or gelatin sounds like a good idea. It would also depend on the season you are making them. They don't do well with humidity or hot weather.
