Stunning! I've just started working with isomalt. How did you create such smooth walls? Do you mind sharing your tips? LOVE your work just amazing!

Glad you like! I poured onto a large SilPat that had the sides and bottom edges made by greased sheet pans. The top were allowed to be free-form. Pour was about 3/16" thick. Isomalt was allowed to cool till just a bit soft. Then the SilPat was draped over the outside of a stock pot I'd laoyed on it's side and blocked so it wouldn't roll. It took 2 people to drape, one on each side. I kept an eye on the isomalt it case it was still too hot and started to sag.

That was it! After the walls cooled it was painted with airbrush colors and colored cocoa butter.

My reaction: Oh what a lovely candle holder someone has made. *clicks on the DD thumbnail* ... *read* ... THAT IS FOOD?!
Okay, as a 'candle holder' I would've given it a score of 100 (out of 100) but now that I see that it is edible, I give it over nine thousand (sorry for the out of date reference, hur), because that is just amazing.

If this was for me, I could never eat it. It's too fantasmagoricly lovely, for all of it to be digested would be such a shame...!
