Making small jewels for a cake w isomalt.  It worked perfectly and I was so excited! Drections say to pour the extra in puddles, then store them airtight until you're ready to reheat to use. I did all that. But now I can't get rid of little foamy bubbles in the reheated batch. Heated in microwave at 5 second intervals till about 340 degrees...still can't get them out.  Now trying to heat them in a 250 degree oven. Also, would a blue silicone mold react differently than the plastic hard candy molds? Please help!!!! These must be on a cake in 48 hours!  Thanks...PAT

AI found after you heat the Isomalt you have to let it set for the bubbles to disburse. Then pour it into your mold. If you get a bubble in the mold use a pin to pop it right after you pour it. I used a blue silicone mold and had no problems. HTH

when i made some isomalt butterflies, i use the wilton measuring cups , next to the smallest one,  i think. Melted the isomalt in the cups, let set for just a little and the bubbles went away and then poured right into the silicone butterfly mold. hth
