Good Evening! This is the first topic I have created. I have pored over this site looking for a possible solution, I am sorry if it is already here and I haven't seen it.

I make a big gingerbread house and yard each year. This year I have decided to also attempt to make a snowglobe w/a smaller house or sleigh under it...all edible of course.

I want to make the snow globe 'glass' out of candy, the same way that I make the windows, but first am not sure if that is the best option. Ideas on that would be great!

Second, to set the candy 'glass', I am thinking of using to silicone bowls, one that fits into the other, so that they can be pulled apart once the 'glass' bowl hardens.

Please let me know if any of you have any ideas or suggestions and thank you!!

that sounds very do-able. Or you can line a half sports ball w/ nonstick foil. It sounds like an adorable idea! Isomalt would definitely be the way to go for a clear glass look.

I think both ideas are great! I'm glad I'm reading about this. I am going to try it. Thanks

I think the silicone bowls would work perfectly. Let us know how it turns out. Definitely use the isolmalt.
