The answer to this question is quite simple: using isomalt. Follow the instructions on the back of the pack and be careful not to burn your fingers when melting, because it becomes very hot.
Once cured, isomalt mimics ice crystals perfectly!
If you want, dye it in sky blue using a very small amount of food coloring. Pour and leave to harden well. Afterwards, you can break it into irregular pieces to mimic ice crystals.

Plant the resulting blue crystals in the sugar dough partially covering the top level of your cake leaving enough space for the other figurines (if you want to use them). However, be careful!
Please remove the crystals before serving the cake
As you can see in the pictures, when the isomalt dries completely it perfectly mimics the glass. And although it is edible, its edges can be sharp and so it is not suitable for children. Therefore, you can remove the crystals before serving the cake pieces.
