yes, you can pour melted sugar into a glass. Just make sure that the glass is not cold. You could run the glass under hot water for a while to make it warm. I pour melted sugar and isomalt into a glass measuring cup all the time. that should give you a really cool look. good luck.
double post...sorry
I used to give gift certificates with all of the details...size, value up to, exp. date, etc...but the problem I experience is that they never used it on time and called a year later and asked if it would still be OK to redeem.
