Thank you for the sweet comments!
To make the water stuff, I used an old hard candy recipe:
Equal parts sugar and Light Corn Syrup in a heavy saucepan
Heat to hard crack stage—around 305 degrees
^^That was the recipe—I then poured the sugar mix over a bowl full of ice, waited just a little bit and gently dumped the contents out—some ice was “stuck” in the sugar, so I just ran some cool water over it until it melted enough to get it out. This was the first time I ever did this and it turned out great!
I tried to look up a good tutorial, but most of them used isomalt or mixed royal icing in the sugar mix. The recipe used what I had on hand—-and it turned out super cool!
Thank you again for all the sweet comments!
