AHi, I've been asked to make a frozen cake with sugar glass panels. I've made a sheet of sugar glass, left to cool and then smashed into pointy sections. Now a few questions! 1. Very quickly it becomes sticky. I need to put it in the cake on Thurs night for Friday delivery. The cake will be eaten Saturday. Will it just be a sticky mess? Is there anyway to stop it from becoming sticky? I can't put in the fridge as the cake is covered in fondant. 2. How do I attach the glass to the cake?! Royal icing?
Not sure if the attachment will work:

Thanks in advance for your help. :-D
ANow one of the glass pieces has started melting! Please help!!:eek:
I would not attach it until the last minute before delivery. Is it very humid where you are, or are you trying to store the glass in the fridge?
I have not used Isomalt, but you might try that - might not react the same way as regular sugar.
AHi step, when I made mine from corn syrup I left it out to dry, it was abit sticky but able to work with it, I attach it with royal icing. Heres a pic of mine, I made about 2 mths ago.[IMG]http://cakecentral.com/content/type/61/id/3269971/width/200/height/400[/IMG]

Hiya Nannycook; would you mind sharing your recipe you used in making the shards and how you made them please. I also live here in the UK; but am yet to readily find corn syrup; except on Amazon :) Thank you.
AHi Kadesan, no probs, I got mind from Amazon, but like siany said think you get it in the American isle at Tesco. 1 and half cups of gran sugar. 3/4 cup of corn syrup. 1/2 cup of water.
Stir till dissolved, then boil til 300, add colouring, spray your tin with spray light or similar, pour in gently, love to harden.
Thanks a lot Siany and Nannycook :D
Is corn syrup necessary for this recipe. Can we use only water and sugar?
