I need to make a large amount of gelatin butterflies and would like to start making them ahead of time. Can I make them and store the wings in a container??

I have some that I made almost 2 years ago, they are in a sealed ziploc bag. As long as they are completely dry, they last a VERY long time.

Are there instructions here for making gelatin butterflies? I have a little girl that would like butterflies on her cake at the end of this month.

I believe there is a tutorial on here. If not Cake Connection makes the veiners and has a tutorial on her sight.

Hi all. I am trying to find the web link for the butterfly veiner sheet or a video tutorial for making gelatin butterflies. Can someone help?

Question for you.. have you made the gelatin butterflies yet? If so do you think it's easier to attach them to royal icing bodies or fondant? I'm doing a cake decorating party for some 8 year olds and the butterfiles are part of the instruction, just trying to figure out what would be easier for them to do.

IMO, it would be easier for them to attach them to a royal icing body....pipe the body, and still the wings in there before it hardens.
