Crystal candy rocks

  • 100 grams of isomalt crystals (for each color)
  • 1 small pan
  • Purple food color
  • Sugar thermometer
  • Gloves

Edible moss

  • 100 grams of super thin grated coconut
  • Green food color
  • Yellow food color
  • 1 small bowl
  • Gloves

Water drops

  • 100 grams of isomalt crystals (for each color)
  • 1 small pan
  • 1 spoon
  • Gloves (latex or isomalt gloves)

How to Make Crystal Candy Rocks for Cookie #1:

  • Put the isomalt crystals into the pan and heat it until it reaches 180° C
  • Carefully, with a wood spoon, add two drops of food coloring and mix
  •  Pour the colored isomalt into a silpat and let it cool
  • When it's cooled, chop it with a knife into small pieces
  • Repeat the process with 2 lighter colors

How to Make Edible Moss for Cookie #2:

  • Pour the grated coconut into a bowl
  • Add two drops of green food color and one drop of yellow food color
  • Mix it with your hands (it would be better for you to mix it with your hands so the color will paint better the grated coconut)

How to Make Water Drops for Cookie #3:

  • Wear gloves
  • Put the isomalt crystals into the pan and heat it until it reaches 180° C, then turn the fire off
  • Carefully, put the cookie near the pan and take a small amount of the clear isomalt so you can pour a couple of drops in the painted leaves to make them feel more natural
  • WARNING: BE CAREFUL! THE ISOMALT IS SUPER HOT - EVEN IF IT DOESN'T APPEAR TO BE.
