Hi. I am trying to make the sugar tiles for a baby shower cake. its my first time trying. my problem is i cant seem to get away from having the little air bubbles form in the bottom of the molds.. i am using a recipe i found here..any suggestions?
(medium heating sugar, corn syrup and water to 300 degrees. cooling to 260 and then pouring into wiltons brownie molds)
I just had the same problem! I was trying to make a screen for my blackberry cake. Is this a hard candy recipe or are you using isomalt?
I used isomalt. I did not end up using the screen on the cake because of the air bubbles. I was told that I stirred the isomalt too much. But either way, you have to heat to 340 degrees, I believe. I dont think you are heating high enough. What does your themometer say? If you already have the bubbles, then you can use a blow torch to get rid of them, apparently. But I do not know exactly what stage? Nor do I feel comfortable with a blow torchd! HTH!
no i was using corn syrup, water, and sugar. a recipe i read on these forums. i melted to 300 then cooled to 260 like it said. ive tried 2 different pans, tried heating higher, tried cooling more, just cant get those little buggers outta there! LOL they look good tho. my hubby seems to think no one will notice on the cake so im gonna try some more tonight. i also read that the isomalt is not worth it. so thats why i went the sugar route first. let me know if u figure it out! ps...no blow torches!
