Funny thing was that I watched your video this morning when cleaning out my IE bookmarks (yours didn't get deleted, btw! thumbs_up.gif )

I loved the idea...I suppose with enough time to dry. they'd work great. I'm mad for the pretty! Thanks for the ideas!!

Another great video!! I got to thinking, I wonder if there is a way to flip those larger flowers without crushing them, then pull the paper off and allow the "back" to set a bit as well. That way you could move it, without having it deform itself. I have a batch of leftover icing in the fridge, maybe I'll try it out and see what I can do.

lol-I posted a response to this but it never showed up! Crazy computers icon_lol.gif
vstar_pilot -did you do the experiment? I thought about that too and I'm sure that would be easier, just peeling off the wax paper.
I'm so excited, I have another video in the works, just won't have time to work on it until this weekend icon_sad.gif

Serious... I didn't try it yet. I'm hoping maybe this weekend. Still need to figure out what to flip them onto. I want something soft, so maybe they won't flatten. A piece of foam maybe? I'll let you know what I figure out.

vstar_pilot...what about a pile of cornstarch or powdered sugar? I was watching "How It's Made" and I see a lot of candy company use cornstarch as their molds, then shake it all off once everything is dried/jelled. It's be a soft thing for the top of the flowers to lay in while the bottoms dried, I'd think. Just a suggestion...let us know how your experiment works out! icon_biggrin.gif
