Does this help?http://britishfood.about.com/od/glossary/g/gelatin.htm

Can you not get granulated gelatin there, the sheets are pretty rare over here, so most things call for the powder. It sounds like you want 6 sheets per packet. Not sure how you would use it in the recipe though... soak it in the heavy cream? Good luck!

no i dont think i can get powdered gelatin the sheets will dissolve when heated and go soft when in liquid so you think it would need 18 sheets? ie 6 per pack

Are you referring to the Michelle Foster's Fondant recipe? If so, it only calls for 3 Tablespoons not 3 packs.
