Gelatin Flowers On Stacked Cake

I finally tried the gelatin flowers that I saw posted in a forum here. They were so easy and they are a fresh change from typical flowers. Unfortunately, they're not edible (they're formed on floral wire) but I'm getting over my "everything on the cake must be edible" issues.

KatieTaylor77 -- try the gelatin flowers. I could not believe how easy they were. The most time consuming part is forming each individual petal with the floral wire. After that it takes very little time to complete! I did read in the directions that you should NOT double dip your petals but I did it on a few of them (the really dark purple ones) to see what would happen and i like the contrast. You do have to kind of scrape the excess gelatin off so it doesn't drip but it worked well.
