My friends and I are going to be making Gelatin flowers for the first time and Don't have a a lot of time together at once so I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions or tips on making them. This way we can maximize our time together. icon_smile.gif Those darn kids schedules they always get in the way! icon_lol.gif

I found the most time consuming part was making the wires for dipping. If you could have some made of different sizes that would help you with your time together.

Once the dipping begins it's fairly quick, except for the drying time.

Yeah, the time factor is unbelievable on making cake things. Unless you do it people don't even get it. With children factored in all I can say is God Bless, I hate starting and stopping.

Thanks! The kids will be gone that is why we only have a few hours till they get back. icon_rolleyes.gif Mine is in preschool and it only lasts so long.
We will definitely take you advice and make the wires ahead of time.
