Remember my last two posts about ‘rock’ cakes? And I said I’d been having a play? Well I have!
After the success with marble/agate effect fondant I decided to try ‘growing’ geodes or crystals. Sugar crystals sparkle like the real thing, add a little gel colour and they can look like semi-precious stones.
You can use the same process to grow rock sugar. That you can use to also make your rocks.
This took about four days of ‘growing.’ You can leave them longer, or you may find they don’t take so long. It really depends how you want them to look, and the conditions.
