- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1/4 cup corn syrup
- 1/8 cup water
Combine ingredients in sauce pan and bring to boil until the mixture reaches 295 F. If you don't have a candy thermometer to gauge, get a glass of ice water. Once the mixture starts to thicken, use a spoon and drop a little in the water. If it hardens and cracks, it's ready. If it dissolves in the water, keep the mixture boiling.
Once it's ready, remove it from the heat and add food colouring and flavouring if you want. Pour onto a foil covered baking sheet and set aside to harden. It should harden within an hour. You can then break pieces with a kitchen mallet.
When using to decorate a cake, don't worry about the fondant reacting with it. I added the ice to the cake and then put it in the fridge and it set wonderfully!
