Does anyone know how to make a coral reef out of sugar? You pour the sugar over ice.
I believe so. Like this?
I think this technique is used with isomalt not straight sugar.
i've done in multiple times! just take a basic candy making sugar recipe (like for lollipops) and get it to a hard crack stage. have your crushed ice ready to go in largish tupperware bowls...maybe 4 bowls. then have your containers that you're going to tint the sugar in ready to go too. pour your sugar into the containers and quickly color them (a tiny bit of gel colors does the trick). then pour each container into its own tupperware over the ice. the ice will melt and you'll be left with really cool looking coral! break it if you need smaller pieces. just be sure to let it drain really well on racks before you apply to cake or the color will bleed PM me if you have any questions.
Here's a pic of the cake I did this on!
I wasn't thinking about this but was reading posts and found it. That is GREAT information and something I will remember to use if I make a beach, underwater cake. Love your cake with that!
AThat looks amazing, you did a great job.

Thank you! It was super fun to make!
AThat cake is really beautiful! It is nice to know that you can use more than just isomalt. You did a terrific job!
