The ice bucket is the cake while the Champagne bottle and ice cubes are made of Isomalt – a sugar substitute that is edible. Why not order a custom cake to help make your celebration a memorable event?
Want to know more about Isomalt – see below:
From Wikipedia: Isomalt is a sugar substitute, a type of sugar alcohol, used primarily for its sugar-like physical properties. It has only a small impact on blood sugar levels and does not promote tooth decay, i.e. is toothfriendly. Its energy value is 2 kcal/g, half that of sugars.
Isomalt is a versatile, crystalline substance with many different uses and applications. It is derived from sucrose and preferred by pastry and cake professionals for its stability and usability. Isomalt has to be heated to a precise temperature, molded and then cooled slowly to create the effects of glass, ice cubes or other semi -transparent items.
While isomalt is edible, due to its dietary fiber-like properties, it should only be eaten in small quantities (50 grams per day for adults or 25 grams per day for children) or it could cause gastric distress, such as flatulence and/or diarrhea.
