AI saw the other day a cake decorated with something that looks like a glass bauble, like a hollow transparent glass ball. I think you make them out of sugar and sort of blow it. Like the way you would make a real one... Has anybody here a clue about that? How does it work? What is the recipe? Or where could I search for a tutorial???

You can also make them out of gelatin if I am thinking of the same thing you are. I did this and they turned out vey well. This is the tutorial I used http://www.cakecentral.com/a/how-to-make-gelatin-bubbles it was very helpful.

AThanks alot for the quick response! Thecakewitch, that's what I am looking for. Did you try it? I know I won't get tartar cream here, is that a must? Or can I substitute it? Jayjay23, good alternative! Are they as "stable" as the sugar ones?

AIt's been forever since I made those back in culinary school! If you can get Isomalt, that's much more easy to work with than sugar.

I've never tried sugar ones but the gelatin ones dry rock hard because you use a lot of gelatin with not a lot of water. I didn't have any trouble with them breaking.

Try this - you can translate the post to English on the right hand side. You could use a different size mold if you needed a bigger bauble.
