I am very interested too. There is a tutorial on how to make gelatin bows, but not bubbles yet.

I have the .pdf on my site (since I wrote it), it is more expanded than the one in the ICES newsletter since they were limited on space. My site is at the button on the bottom of this post.

I made these last weekend using the instructions from the ICES newsletter article and they worked!!!

My big mistake though was blowing my balloons too large and not making enough gelatin to dip with or cleaning around the opening. It's a learning curve but I was really excited that they all worked out so well. AND I let them dry for several days before popping the balloons.

Thanks for the tutorial. Now I will look at your website for more detailed instructions.

Thanks Tami,

Carol

Sweetflowers...I recently used your instructions to make the gelatin bubbles and want to thank you for the great tutorial. I was successful and had put them in the oven to dry so they would be out of the way. The next day, I went to make dinner and was pre-heating my oven when I started hearing a snapping sound. Then it hit me the bubbles were in the oven! lol I pulled them out and put them to the side, later on that evening they were dry enough to pop and remove the balloons. Success! I had six beautiful red bubbles!
I was cleaning up and decided to put them back in the oven so they would be out of the way and could completely dry. Sure enough the next evening I turned on my oven to make dinner and soon realized what I had done again! They weren't so lucky this time and had to be tossed! I will be making them again soon and hopefully will not bake them! lol

Oh My...what a funny story! You can use a small fan to make them dry faster. I'm lucky I have that in my bedroom so they can sit there. I am going to demo these tomorrow at our DOS, so I'm going to tell your story (edited of course!!)

Loved the tutorial! Thanks so much for it! Question: How big have you made these bubbles? And how transparent are they? I wanted to make a hamster ball with this technique with a fondant hamster inside. Think it will work? It doesn't need to be huge or anything.

Thank you so much. Since I teach these at the local shop, it's important to me to know that you all are able to follow the directions. icon_smile.gif
