I used corn syrup but when I was at the show someone asked me did I use piping gel. 20/20 hindsight I would have either used piping gel or thinned corn syrup as it was really sticky and at times it was a pain in the derriere. icon_lol.gif I used a paint brush to put a little bit on the cake and then tweesers to pick up the sequins.

cakeandpartygirl, your cake is wonderful! Congratulations on your win.

Our cousin will be turning 21 soon and she is going to be transferring to a fashion design school. She would love something like this on her cake.

I've neveer worked with gelatin before. Does anybody know how far in advance gelatin decors can be made? Will they be affected by heat or humidity? Thanks so much!

Its a fantastic idea...but I was wondering about the taste ?? I know I did read about people trying to sweeten the gelatin but I have not gone back to see if anyone had done it.

I am also curious if the geletin sequins affect the taste of the cake??

Since plain "natural" gelatin has no taste at all, I doubt a person would even be able to detect ANY flavor other than that of the cake that the decorations cover.

When I've done gelatin butterflies, they are unflavored but taste horrible! If you flavor the gelatin it won't be as bad.
