Hi guys I need some help. I made several sugar bubbles for a cake, but each morning I wake up, one or bubbles have deflated! Does anyone know why?

I'm still waiting for a response the that very predicament on another thread posted several months back...I hope someone is able to help with your thread.

If they deflate that quickly, you probably have blown them too thin.

The humidity in the air will dissolve spots in a thin wall--you may not even be able to see these spots--and then the weakened spots cause the bubble to cave in on itself. This happens with both sugar and isomalt.

If you want bubbles that will hold up for a few days (or longer), you need to blow them thicker and very evenly so that there are no thin spots in them.
