Hi,

I've read all the topics regarding edible sugar diamonds - everyone says using isomalt gives a clear diamond but I can't seem to find a recipe + detailed instruction of how to make sugar diamonds....

Help~ Does anyone have a recipe with detailed instruction?
I'm a newbie at this and have never made sugar related stuff before...

Where can I find out more on how to make sugar diamonds/gems?

Thanks!

I have used both isomalt and suger for diamonds. If you have a mold or make a mold just boil the sugar or isomalt with some water. If you put to much water it will boil out, if you put to much it will be very thick in the beginning of the boiling process and you will have to add more. I love to play with this stuff. Make sure you boil it to around 250 and then pour it into your mold.

I see! So there's no specific instruction for this? How do I know when it's ready to pour into the mold?

I've seen people talking about temperature, bubbles... etc - I thought it's a little more complicated~
