Gumpaste Rock Candy Geode

Forum: Gumpaste modeling and flowers

I made this today with marbled gray gumpaste dried in crumpled aluminum foil. Glued in the grape flavored string rock candy with clear Isomalt cooked to 320 degrees. A few small white rock candy around the sides and painted the edges with gold luster dust thinned with alcohol. Topper for an upcoming birthday cake.

Sandra Smiley ...

It is beautiful, Shirley! You have me in a fever wanting to make a geode!

Cakeicer (Shirley) ...

Thanks everyone. Sandra, just be careful. I used hot Isomalt to glue in the rock candy pieces, managed to splash a tiny bit on my arm and have a blister this morning. Ouchie!

Sandra Smiley ...

Are you kidding, Shirley! I am afraid of Isomalt!!

Cakeicer (Shirley) ...

With good reason Sandra. I took a pulled and blown sugar class with Chef Ewald Notter in 2000 and I don’t think any student there got out without at least one burn blister. Wear cotton gloves or even double latex gloves when working with it.

Toni (White Crafty Cakes) ...

Wow! It is fabulous!

Cakeicer (Shirley) ...

Thank you Toni, I appreciate it.

Angel Rushing ...

Awesome…I need to try this soon

Cakeicer (Shirley) ...

Not difficult Angel but the candy is formed on string and it isn’t possible to get it all out. I cut it as close as possible to the candy and then turned each piece so it hopefully wouldn’t show.
