buy the "gelatin" that comes in the orange and white box, I think it is. It is with the jello's and/or near the canning stuff I think... It comes in a small box with 2 or 4 small packages in them.

You need to buy plain gelatin not "Jello", you will find it in the same area as Jello is sold.

try unflavored Knox gelatin and put a bit of blue to make it look like water. be careful because i hear that the cubes can melt. Use less water than called for to make it sturdy. I would go the isomalt route and just break it up in little shards or rock candy like this ccer

Using jello on a fondant covered cake made my fondant melt, perhaps the unflavoured Gelatin would be better than jello
