This was great! So easy to make. I used it to fill a martini glass and will fill a bathtub on another cake.
where do you find unflavored gelatin????I have searched everywyhere?
Unflavored gelatin is usually in the "baking needs" aisle. Knox is generally the brand name that you'll find it under.
Wow cool I cant wait to try this recipe
Coming from Scotland not sure what to use instead of corn syrup.??
YO45 - I am not sure if its the same for you in Scotland but in Australia we don't have corn syrup either and I have been told that you can substitute it for Glucose syrup. Hope that helps you.
how much does this make??
