I am baking a pill bottle cake for a 70th bday party.  I would like to use candy pill capsules and have seen them but can't find any place to order them.


Does anyone have any suggestions on how I could  make these candy capsultes?  I've seen the clear capsule shell, if you will, filled with dragees and nonpareils. 


Any ideas would be so helpful!


Thank you,

Try your local druggist. It has been a long time, but I have purchased small boxes of empty capsules. They are made of gelatin.

You could also try a gag gift store. I've seen them sold by the bottle for over the hill gifts.
