Isomalt is the only way I know to make it clear.

I have found that when I use the off brand of corn syrup rather than Karo is doesn't get as dark. still has a not completely clear look to it, but is not as yellow as it is when I use Karo.

I used the walmart brand of splenda and got clear ice for a cooler cake I did. Isomalt was not an option for me as it was a last minute cake and did not have time to order any.

When you used the Off brand splenda, did you use the same amount as you would use sugar? Or less. So if the recipe I have calls for 2 cups of sugar, would I use 2 cups of splenda? Thanks

Yes I did use the same amount as normal sugar.
