I have made sugar ice before but was not happy with the outcome. I used an ice cube tray as my mold and everything came out right but it just did not look as realistic as I wanted. What are some other options for making sugar ice for a cooler cake? Thanks so much.

did you use sugar or isomalt?

was it a little yellow? Is that the problem?

I crumpled up the "release" aluminum foil then uncrumpled it some and poured the sugar over it and let it cool then broke it up. I thought it turned out well and it was fairly easy

It was a tad yellow but I just did not like the shape of them, I wanted them to look like an cooler full of ice

Luckilibra that is exactly what I'm looking for, thanks so much. Did you use isomalt?

I think I just used sugar on that one.. you just have to watch it really closely to make sure you get it before it starts to turn yellow.. I used isomalt on another one I did so either one works, it was just what I had on hand. Glad I could help

when I use sugar to make my ice for coolers, I use distilled water. I found that our local water has chemicals in it that turns the "ice" yellower than when I use distilled water. Just a thought.
