I recently saw a cake that had gelatin bubbles as a decoration. Does anyone know how I would go about achieving such a thing?

I am not sure, but would like to know! I tried myself last week but didn't turn out so well!

I believe they are done with blown sugar. I would post in the candy making section and see what you get there! Good luck... icon_smile.gif

Gelatin bubbles are really fun to make and so many people think that they are blown sugar. I thanked sweetflowers for the tutorial (the link given above ^) when I made my bubble cake. They really make a cake festive!

I can't wait to try them this weekend. I saw your bubbles milkmaid. Very nicely done. I hope mine come out good enough to use on next week's baby shower cake.

gelatin bubbles look good when done but they are not that easy to make (unless i'm doing something wrong). Takes a lot to get good ones then still have to hide holes and imperfections, but don't be discouraged, just informed.

Pick up a copy of "Cake" magazine June 2011 issue. (it has a picture of a bride and groom sitting on luggage) It has a dolphin cake in there where it shows you how. Super cool technique! I know ive seen old issues online.

What do you mean "a syringe". Can you post those directions?

Thanks for posting this icon_smile.gif My first and only attempt at gelatin bubbles was an absolute disaster. I'm not going to give up, though.

So I finished my gelatin bubble cake today.

check it out... http://cakecentral.com/gallery/2182252

I think they came out great. Of course, I wasn't looking for a full sphere which took the pressure off.

Thanks so much. Be sure to read the instructions carefully, they are really easy but do still take one or two tries. I love teaching this class icon_smile.gif
