I have done a search for the above but I can not bring up the posting regarding these. I was looking at them prior to going on holiday but I can not now find the thread. Could someone please point me in the right direction. Have searched several pages but computer is on a go slow so not getting very far very fast. Would appreciate the help. Thanks
I've got loads of info on these - but no time to post now - will try and get to it this evening
Thanks ApplegumKitchen. You could pm me if it is easier. Look forward to the info.
Is this the one? http://www.cakecentral.com/modules.php?name=Forums&file=viewtopic&t=630413&postdays=0&postorder=asc&&start=0
Here's another one from Flickr: http://www.flickr.com/photos/abbietabbie/3507923608/
Yes FlourPots that's the one. Thank you so much, How do I save this topic to find it in future.
You're welcome .
I only know of two ways to get back to a thread..Keeping the page(s) in my AOL "Favorite Places"...or saving one of the "Topic Reply Notifications" that Cake Central sends which has a link right to the thread.
If you have any questions, just ask - there are a couple of us on here that are gelatin lovers now! (bobwondrbuns knows a lot about the medium too!)
Thank you everyone. I have just made my first gelatin flowers. Just one thing I notice was the gelatin seems to be to be going wrinkly like scrunched up cellophane. Is this normal or is there something I am doing wrong. Also can't decide if the mixture is too runny or it has to set to a consistancey to get it to stay on the wire. Yes takes practise and I seem to fluke one every 5. It is okay until I take the last bit out slowly then it just bursts and I have to start again. Though I am pleased with what I have done and will assemble them later. We are doing this at our next meeting so I wanted to get a head start and hopefully know what I am doing.
What kind of mat are you using to make the flowers?
The consistency of the gelatin should be about like finger nail polish.
They shouldn't "burst" ( I am assuming that means break here in the US!) if they are, you may have the gelatin too thin - try making them a tad thicker and see if that helps.
You are making them different than I do. I use an impression mat (check the link I posted) The wire goes through the center of the flower the way I do them! (it isn't around the whole petal like yours)
Here is a pic of mine:
This was the link that flourpots posted in an earlier post. I quite liked this way. I have done the impression mat to make the bows but haven't got around to putting them together as yet.
What 'bloom' gelatine are you using? 220 is the best for this type of work
ApplegumKitchen. I looked on the packet and it says"Derived from Beef Skin. Preseravtive 220. Davis Gelatin Clear and Unflavoured. Is that what you mean?
if you don't use the impression mat, how thick do you make the gel. did you "paint it on or just pour it out?
