I have been asked for a beer glass so how do I make the froth on the top?

I melted marshmellows with a little water in a greased bowl. Add a little coloring (I think I used brown) to get it foam colored. Pour into a container to set that is greased or lined somehow. HTH!

I just used fondant, because in my house the only right glass of beer is a perfectly poured glass, which means it doesn't foam over the top. icon_smile.gif That and Guinness is the choice, and the head (froth) is typically smoother and less bubbly.

Good luck!!!

Beer foam is pretty white, I wouldn't worry about color.

I just added a tiny bit so it was off white rather than bright white

I'm not so fussed about the colour just how to make it??

I did a Google search and found one helpful suggestion: use a small ice cream scoop (or you could use a cookie dough scoop) to scoop bc onto the cake. If you do a search in the CC galleries using "beer foam" in the search box, you'll find a number of pix of beer stein cakes. One in particular looks like the decorator used a large round tip and a whipped type of icing to create "blobs" of foam. Looked pretty realistic.
