Today I thought I would get started on the homemade blue "ice" candies that are used on the cake for decorations. They can be made ahead of time and stored in an airtight container.
Remove from heat and stir in a flavored extract and blue food coloring. I chose peppermint extract because it was a clear color and would give the candy "ice" a cool, minty flavor. I added 10 drops of blue coloring.
Pour onto a greased cookie sheet. Let it cool.
