i'm going to make a cake featuring the "airbender" from avatar.

so....i need to bend elements (fire, water, air, earth etc.)

i know i've seen cakes on cc that had the swirling water effect.

i'm thinking isomalt over ice but have never done this. would it give an effect of moving water?

i'm thinking pastillage for fire, gumpaste for earth and maybe cotton candy for air.

i would appreciate any advice especially about the isomalt.

thanks much!

I am not sure about the sugar, but another idea might be to make a white gumpaste plaque or shape you wanted the water shape and then put blue piping gel over it... I dont know just an idea. Good luck!

I saw in another thread where someone used melted Jolly Ranchers for the water and it looked really good. I will try to find it for you
