I want to make a small area of water coming out of a fire hose. ( i'm going to guess 4 or 5 inches tall by 3 inches wide...) I would really like to make it out of sugar but I am new to doing any sugar work and was wondering a few things.. 1.) how much sugar do you think I would need to use for an item that small..
2.) what temperture do you stop cooking it at? 3.) does anyone have any other ideas that I could use for making water?

Thanks soooooo much! icon_smile.gif

To answer your questions (even if its too late) how you do not need much for the measurments you are giving. My batch yields about 2 cups of syrup in the end.

If you want it to reach hard candy stage the temp is 300 degrees

I don't have any other suggestions otherwise because of the height. If it was laying flat, I'd say piping gel of jello
