post #1 of 4 I'm not 100% sure that's what they're called, lol.

I made some gelatin butterflies last week (came out awesome btw!). It got me thinking and I remember reading somewhere about gelatin balls. I think they were made by 'rolling' a blown up balloon in the liquid gelatin, and once the gelatin was dried, letting the air out of the balloon slowly, thus leaving you with a gelatin ball.

I was wondering if anyone has tried this and has any tips. I'm going to attempt to try it this afternoon.

Thank you all so much!

Thank you, I'll post pics of the butterflies later tonight. Here's how I did them....I couldn't remember who it was I bought them from, but a Yahoo search produced a CC thread about them!

Edited to add: I'm going to attempt to make a hot air balloon with a gelatin 'balloon' and a woven fondant/gumpaste basket
