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 the unflavored Knox gelatin.

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
