Hi, Bonnie here.  I was just wondering if you had made my Gummygel, and if so, did you get it to work without the coconut oil?  Or did you use something else in it's place?  If so, I would like to add this info to the revised recipe.  I have not tried this for myself yet.  Hoping that you have had good luck with your mix.  Thanks!
This site does not notify me if someone comments on my stuff.  So I am leaving my email address for anyone that needs a question answered, in a timely manner. lol   Enjoy!   blwilley@Comcast.net
Hi Lillyanne, Sorry to be so long getting back to you, I have been watching my 4 yr. young granddaughter.  As for the sweetness, I never noticed that!  They were just kind of bland.  If you used Glucose, you might want to use the clear corn syrup instead, may not be as sweet.  I really don't think it will matter much at all if you cut back on the glucose.  Both of my recipes seem to be quite forgiving.  The  Vodka sounds like an excellent idea.  If it is not cooked...
Hi JChuck, Is this June, or an affiliate?  Don't recognize this moniker! lol And make that 'GummyGel', Icing Images would not like me calling mine DecoGel, that is their brand's name. Yeah, I started here about the same time I did CWB, & 3rd revolution.  Then there is Craftsy, Cakefu, & yummy arts.  I have about 16 Craftsy classes, and also picked up one of the BIG bundles from yummy arts last year, got everything I wanted with it.   I am fortunate to have so much...
Hi Countrycakes,   I get mine glycerine by the gal. from ebay.  There are several sites that have it here in the US, don't have to worry about the China 'brand' that way.  1. This is a site located in Ohio, for bulk Vegetable Glycerin.  For me, the price, & shipping, cost about the same, about $13.50 each, totaling about $28 for 10 lbs, or a FULL gallon jug.   That comes to about $2.80 for...
Hi Country Cakes!  And thanks for stopping by.  You are going to love this stuff.  It is easy to make, & can be remelted for later use, so pour into separate cups, for coloring, just the amount(s) you will need during your project.  I often have several colors going at one time, and you can label & save any leftovers for another time.   Don't throw any away, just remelt, & reuse.  And I strongly recommend that you flavor every batch, if nothing else, use vanilla, &/or...
Hi!  Yes, for all the many colored gems, I used a plastic isomalt/chocolate/candy sheet mold. And for the beads, etc, I used a mold. 
Hi Annabakescakes, you did send me this, quite a while back, and I was so glad that you were able to get it to work.  Then a little while later, I found a cake with the same design on it, and showed it to you.  This you might remember. And thanks for sending it this time, just in case!!  That was so thoughtful!
Hi! I have an updated data/info sheet on GummyGel:   'GummyGel' for Decorating Cakes   GummyGel is very versatile, and can be poured into almost any mold.   GummyGel is shiny like Isomalt, but is much safer than hot sugar because it requires less heat to use, no need to boil, though boiling won't hurt it.   GummyGel feels like a slightly softer version of a gummy bear.  GummyGel can be...
Hi everyone, This is the process I used to make my latest mold, on May 22nd, using my mold recipe.  First I used fondant, then my GummyGel, in the mold.  Both worked, but I like the detail with the GummyGel better.  I think the design was a little to  fine & shallow for the fondant/gumpaste, almost too shallow & fine even for the GummyGel.  I will take this into consideration on my next mold.  Remember to oil the mold well before each use, when using the GummyGel.  To...
