I've looked and looked and looked, and can't find any candy molds (or chocolate molds) in the shape of margarita glasses. I want o make some out of sugar, and although I have the instructions for making beer bottles, I can't quite do the same thing with a margarita glass, since I can't just turn it inside out in the same way, etc. I'd love to do this with a mold, but can't find any ... please let me know if anybody has any web sites anywhere I don't know of!

Thanks for your help!!

What size??? I found a couple styles on Candyland Crafts site...not sure if they are what you are looking for or not. Saw them yesterday when I was looking for something else and thought they were cute.

Oh, that's awesome, thanks so much! I never thought to look uder champagne glasses (I'm assuming that's what you're referring to there, right? They look just like margarita glasses!).

thanks so much!!

In order to use a mold with hot sugar, it must be a HARD CANDY mold (they're opaque white, not clear) or silicone that can hold liquid up to 375 degrees. Hot sugar will melt anything else.

candyland crafts has both types of molds, for chocolate and hard candy. Rae is correct, they are different

the one's I found were for hard candy and I thought they were listed as margarita glasses, but maybe that just what my brain was WANTING to see! icon_biggrin.gif

Yes, Rae and Patty, thanks for making sure I knew! I would hate to make a mistake like that. Badkitty, I actually didn't pull anything up under margarita glasses, but I'll go back and make sure the ones I have are hard candy molds, since the champagne shape is not the flute but rather the wide-mouthed glass, and it could double perfectly as a margarita glass. Thanks to all of you for your help!

I actually made a martini glass which you could use. What i did is use an actual glass. I made the sugar and poured a large circle on a silpat let it cool a little till I could handle it but was still soft. I sprayed the inside of the glass with pam and then put the circle of sugar in and formed it to the shape and let it cool. I then made the stem and the bottom. There is a pix in my photos.

Juliebold, I love it! That would actually be perfect ... would it be safe (humidity-wise, with the sugar melting) for me to mount a glass on a cake like that a day before it's served? It would be a fondant cake, so not quite as much moisture as a buttercream-covered cake. I love this idea!

Thanks so much for your help, everyone!
