So I finally had a chance to try out the gummy gem recipe......SO easy, well ok I made a few rookie mistakes. Trying for the first time at 9 PM when I knew I had to leave soon to get my son, but hey it was for my daughter's cake!!! I also used red gel paste forgetting that it doesn't always blend well hence the dark specks, but all in all I love the recipe. It's easy to use if you follow the step by step and tastes really yummy! (I used raspberry for mine) I hope you try it out and like it as much as I did, I can't wait to use the idea on another cake!

They really taste great, you can use any flavor you like. The tutorial said you can add citric acid to make them like sour gummies but that wasn't what I was looking for. One batch made enough gummy to make the jewels to completely cover a 9" cake and a bit for "quality control" LOL I'm going to try watermelon next for my son's class for Halloween. Here's the latest post from their FB page, if I'm feeling brave I may even give these a go!!!

Well I did it! I made the gummy eyeballs (not bad for a first attempt) and went on to make other treats since it was so easy!! I hope all the goblins and ghoolies at school like them!!

It was really easy to do. They have a starter kit. I bought that to start but I ended up going back and purchasing the full size bottle of great lakes. Heres a link to the kit I bought
