I am making a bottle of rum for a cake and need to add a glass with ice. How do you create edible ice cubes for a cake?


Thanks in advance.

Lots of unflavored gelatin and not much water... (Edible but won't taste like anything and it'll be like eating rubber.) icon_lol.gif

Thank you so much. I guess I could set it in an ice tray. Will post the results.

quick question. What happens is you put sugar to make it sweet? like sweet jello??

I've added unflavored gelatin to Jello to make Knox blocks for the kids, so I know unflavored gelatin will make a firm ice cube...

I don't know how adding sugar to the unflavored gelatin to make it sweet would affect the clarity. I do know from making Jello, if the sugar isn't completely dissolved it will make the bottom of the Jello grainy (and not so transparent). Not so good when making ice cubes.

(From making popcorn glaze) I suspect if the sugar is overcooked before adding the gelatin, the color will be yellow not translucent. Also not so good when making ice cubes.

Might want to search the "Sugar/Candy" forum for other ice cube options.

If you use a plastic ice cube tray - spray it with PAM or any kind of spray coating before you put the jello in it. They'll slide right out if you do this first.
