Need a good quick way to make fake ice cubes for a beer cake. Tried one recipe with corn syrup & sugar. Thought it was working good until it wouldn't harden. Later it actually melted when I took the cubes out of the mold :( Did I possibly not heat it up to a high enough temp? Didn't use a candy thermometer

You might try my GummyGel.  It will not melt, unless it is really hot!  And it is mostly clear until you add color.  Will retain whatever shape you make it in.  Very durable.  Just be sure to add a nice flavor, the gelatin itself is not all that tasty! lol   The updated recipe is at the bottom of page 2:

Good luck, and let me know how it turns out!

Here's my recipe for ice & it works great:  2/3 c. splenda, 1/3 c. granulated sugar, 1 c. light karo syrup  Directions:  cook on medium high heat in a heavy pot to 300 degrees ( it takes about 30 minuts) stir occasionally.  Pour into silicone ice cube strays and cool  OR  pour onto non-stick aluminum foil, score the cooked sugar with a knife into small squares, cool completely & break apart. You can also crumble the foil & then it will look llike cracked ice. Hope this helps you! Julie Crawford
