The only way that comes to mind to get a clear glass is to cast it in isomalt/sugar. You could do blown sugar if you are used to working with it, but for casting you would make a mold of the glass with a two part food grade putty (like Amazing Mold Putty or Make Your Own Mold). It sets up in about an hour for thick molds. When it's done you pour the melted isomalt into it. You can do it in two parts and glue them together. I did see some cakes where they made the glasses out of gumpaste or fondant and made them in different colors. Make sure you use a support in your stem if you use fondant.
Take pictures when you make it!
Good Luck,

If you are new to this I would probably make the martini glass from cake and then cover in fondant. I would stack 3 6" rounds and carve to the shape of the top part of the martini glass or use the Wondermold pan and then use a large plastic dowel covered in fondant for the stem part of the glass. Attach that dowel to your cake board and set the cake atop that dowel.

We sell Amazing Mold Putty on our website, but you can also find it at Michael's Crafts or Make Your Own Mold is Both putty are food grade silicone. Amazing Mold Putty dries faster here in Florida, we had to wait overnight for Make Your Own Mold, but both are very good products.
