Can anyone tell me why you can't put the gelatin bows, flowers, butterflies in the refrigerator? I read in the book not to refrigerator or freeze them. Do they melt or do the colors run? TIA.

I think it's because when they are out of the fridge and coming to room temp, the condensation would cause the gelatin to melt.

Thanks. I kind of thought that but wanted to be sure. They say you shouldn't refrigerate fondant either, but I do it all the time with no problems. I was hoping maybe the gelatin was the same type of thing.
