Hey every one I am still trying my last batch of gel bubbles to see if they will work. Cake is for delivery on Friday at 5:30. 2yr old "bubble theme" birthday cake.

what else can I use if these don't work??? she wants bubbles cascading down the 2 tier cake. 8/12 in tiers. The cake will have tropical blue color frosting (her choice) with red fondant ball boarders and red dots on the cake.

(that is the colors on the invitation blue and red)..

Please any ideas would be great.. I am ready to go find clear plastic christmas decorations.

Here's some other bubbles on cakes...granted they all have the theme of rubber duckies, but I think the bubbles are cute...especially the ones with luster dust.

Here's another ducky bubble cake...only these have a mix of the gelatin and fondant bubbles. You might PM this person and find out why yours aren't working. Or maybe color some of your bubbles blue and shiny to mix with the white ones.

You could get candy molds. Wilton has one that looks like a half ball i got my forms from sur la table. Pour just enough white candy melt to coat a the form then when set put two together to form a ball. then for smaller bubbled you can make them out of fondant. I would add a little shine with pearl dust and a little light blue luster dust. I hope this helps.

What about dipping your balloons in the candy melts? If it works then you could actually eat the bubbles.

. Good add! I thought that after I looked up how to do the gelatin bubbles, and just didn't go back and add to my post. Just make sure when dip in the candy you sit it down quickly or you will have peaks where you need it smooth. Those candy melts set pretty quickly. icon_smile.gif
