I need to make a glass window that will stand up. I can't use gel because it needs to be solid & as clear as possible. Don't know much about candy making & have looked thru my books to no avail. Any suggestions? Tried to find an answer thru search, but had no luck either. Thanks for your help - again! icon_biggrin.gif

I'm not sure if this method would work but it is an idea. Torki is a great person and she may be able to answer any questions you have for this method.

Not sure how big you need windows. Hope someone else has some answers.

One of my cake books uses hard boiled sweets (in the UK) to make "glass".

My book uses different colours but you could use all clear ones maybe hard boiled clear peppermints. They're put in the oven on a tray and as the melt they spread into one another and make a flat slab. Once cooled you can break it into pieces.

I'll look it up when I get back from work to give the temperatures etc. and I imagine you could cut it into the right shape with a hot knife or before it sets again.

Sheet gelatin shoud work if it's being supported and doesn't carry weight.

Just make up a clear hard candy recipe. Pour into molds let set.
