needing to make some ice cubes?
I saw where you could make some out of gelatin but wont the gelatin kinda liquify after so long at room tempature or does it hold its shape pretty good?

I've never tried it, but some around here like to use poured sugar, or isomalt. They pour it into a square (or maybe ice-cube shaped) mold. Just make sure you use a mold that is safe for the really high temperature of the sugar. It's kind of like making hard candy. Good luck!

I tried to make ice by useing 1/2 cup sugar and !/2 cup kayro syrup and cooked it the microwave for 6 minutes stirring every minute. The mixture stayed clear but did not harden until I put it in the freezer. It broke up fine but melted to a very stick form after about 30 minutes on the cake. What a mess!! Any ideas to what I did wrong. Please I need some help.

I haven't tried this yet but wouldn't the recipe for make jiggler's work when warm? I know I have seen them sitting out for long periods of time and they don't melt.

I made ice cubes out of plain gelatin, molding in an ice cube tray. They kept in my refrigerator for at least a week, I don't remember how long I kept them, but once they were put out at room temp they started to melt after 2 days. (I used them on top of red jello as a soft drink w/ice cubes as part of a picnic food cake scene.)
