Hello all, I am not a pastry chef, first time user of Isomalt. Made a few bottles with clear isomalt and now want to fill them with chocolate to make them look like Dr. Pepper bottles. My question is this...If I mix some isomalt with the chocolate will it make it more clear like Dr. Pepper? Can it even be done since them melt at different temperatures? I am making the cake for a State Fair contest, not baking illegally. Also how long do pieces last made out of Isomalt. I'm going on day 3 in my apt and so far so good but I have about a week and a half before the competition. Cooked Isomalt at 334degrees. All help is greatly appreciated! Also Trying to find gloves to not burn the crap out of my hands does anyone know where I can purchase some? Wilton supposedly discontinued the ones I was thinking of purchasing.
