You want to search on isomalt on here and you will find some entries about it. There are a few tricks on using it to get it clear like ice but I hear it's not too hard to do. For smaller projects I use the bottled sugar crystals.

Where can you buy bottled sugar crystals? And what types of smaller projects would you use them for? TIA!

Do you have Fox's Glacier mints where you are? They make a realistic substitute and the only effort is unwrapping them! LOL

I could probably locate it at a British import store - thanks for the tip! icon_smile.gif

Why don't you do gelatin? Are you talking about BIG ice cubes? Like from a tray? You can do gelatin (1/2 the water) into an ice tray, and it comes out fine.
