Look up microwave rock Candy - I love that stuff, it is so easy to make and it might be just what you are looking for.

My guess is isomalt.  A non-baker friend just melted lollipops on a tray and broke it in to pieces to put on a Frozen cake for her daughter.  I was surprised how well the pieces turned out.  If you don't want to mess with isomalt, that may be worth a try.

Nope, not isomalt. I just made a Frozen themed cake earlier this year. I used the recipe for the ice from here:

Just change the coloring and flavor accordingly. HTH!

cook some sugar and add in the blue coloring, then just pour it on to some parchment paper and let it cool.

I have worked with isomalt in a high humidity place it does holds better than regular sugar, but eventually it's going to melt, but if you live in a dry city i think isomalt can works just fine.

These are isomalt. Easy Peasy to do. :-), Cake was served outside - humid - about 85 degrees. It held up fine for the hour before it was demolished by little birthday guests. :-)

I made mine thin and light colored, but you could do it thicker and darker like your picture.
