I am using a gelatin recipe to make some jewels.
Can someone give me some ideas on what to mix into the gelatin to give my jewels some "sparkle".
I thought of "Disco" powder, which I've seen on the net but have never used.
I have never used disco dust in gelatin..but i used it on gumpaste and loved the affect! i dont see why it wouldnt work in gelatin?
you can try super sparkle dust!
Can you post or PM me the recipe your using for the jewels? My DD's bday is next month and she is all girl and would love them.
I would like to know how to make the jewels too. can you post it for us?
Me three! Please post the jewels recipe. Thanks! Can you also let us know what dust worked for you.
It sounds interesting, I would like to know too..
I add disco dust to the gelatin for the butterflies and bows all the time, works fine.
Ditto on interested in knowing what you use.
Thats my next item on the list - finding a good recipe!
I did make some molds to do the jewels so I can't wait to try them. Will keep you updated once I find the recipe.
Anyone have a good one?
after doing some researching on the type of dusts out there, I think either the sparkle or the disco will work.
Haven't found too much on the gelatin but did discover that there is a product out there called "isomalt". I believe it is some kind of sugar substitute and you can melt it down to pour into molds for gems.
Just don't know where you can buy it.
They sell isomalt at most candy supply stores.It is made for making hard candies.
You may have to get the isomalt online, I live near Columbus OH, and not one cake / candy supplier sells it here. I know countrykitchensa.com has it and so does makeyourownmolds.com - they sold out of it at ICES.
