I thought I would let you know just in case you use Knox gelatin that I found it at Target on clearance for .74 cents icon_smile.gif
I know I use this a lot!

Can you share what you use it for? I've only used it for Michele Foster's fondant.

I mostly do fondant cakes. That's what I use it for.
It has an expiration date of 2 yrs from now so I know I will use them.

Also remember not all Targets put the same things on clearance but if you use them you might want to check icon_smile.gif

Is the clearance for all of the Targets, or just for your local store?

I use it for stabilized whipped cream, mousse and homemade marshmallows - haven't tried it in fondant yet.

I'd like to know how you use it to stabilize whipped cream.

Okay. Here's my recipe/technique.

Stabilized Whipped Cream

This is small quantity, multiply as needed.

4 tsp water
1 tsp gelatin

Mix & heat in microwave (just a couple of seconds) til gelatin is dissolved, then cool

1 cup heavy whipping cream
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 TBS sugar

Combine cream and vanilla; beat w/ whisk attachment in electic mixer. Continue beating and slowly sprinkle in sugar. Beat until trail marks are evident. With mixer still running, slowly add the gelatin mixture in a steady stream along the side of the bowl, avoiding the whisk. Beat til stiff.

Thanks for sharing that recipe!

Puzzlegut, I've always found that not all Targets have the same clearance but you can always check by their food isles on the clearance area icon_smile.gif
I went to my Target today again and they still have lots of them, I guess not many people use them lol

Yomomma thank you! I will be trying that one of these not too hot days. May as well just say in the Fall. Sometimes whipped cream is just THE best icing for a cake.

Just so you all know. I found it yesterday for .54¢ @ Target.

Just so you know.... gelatin is meat.

Chutzpah, you're as bad as I am! LOL
Every time someone mentions gelatin, you remind them it's meat; every time someone mentions calla lilies, I remind them they are poisonous!
