I got mine from fondant source. Use cake central in your coupon code for 20% off.

I had to get mine from Squires in the UK - Think there is roughly 56 in a box.
And i icon_cry.gificon_cry.gificon_cry.gif when they turned cloudy due to the humidity -

Mine had a thing in it that says if they turn cloudy with humidity change to spray them with spray cooking oil and it will shine them back up. I did it and it did, they just sparkled after that!

I noticed that all of the suppliers for the diamonds say they are made from Isomalt. I bought some of the stuff and have tried using it to make "jewels" about a dozen times and it ALWAYS turns yellow. Anyone know the key to keeping it crystal clear?

Has there coupon percentage amount changed? The last time I used it is was 10% off. That's what I've been telling everyone on my posts. I would be great if it has, just means more toys for me..... icon_lol.gif

It will turn yellow if you heat it up too much, so just turn the heat down and don't get it so hot. It should stay clear.

icon_smile.gif I am going to make some of these for a Sweet Sixteen cake, and I hope they don't yellow. I also have one of those little humidity packs from my meds that I'm gonna stick in the bag with them. That should do the trick with the humidity, and I sure hope so. It is SOOO HUMID HERE!!!!!
