How to make Gelatin Bows & Flowers - Page 35

post #511 of 881
Did anyone ever try the jello with sugar? I know it says that it would be too sticky but i'm wondering if made a bit thicker and left to dry longer it might still be used as a medium? Also I posted pictures of the first fancy cake I ever made (I made it the first week in November) It doesn't have any gelatin work its all homemade fondant, but it was still fun to make icon_smile.gif

The regular jello does not work - you can try it and see doing it the way you described, and let us know what you find!

You can use whatever size you want - it doesn't matter. (how big do you want your bow loops to be? figure 2x that length)

Yes, that is what I do. - it makes for a nice full bow! I actually make up a bunch of sheets, and store them in a ziploc bag - that way they are ready to go if I need one. icon_biggrin.gif

Okay..so I have a box of Knox gelatin...when you say 4 tbsp of powder to 12 tbsp of water does that mean one packet of gelatin? Or do have I have to open 2...It doesn't say on the box how much in a packet..but it does say that one packet will set 2 cups of liquid which too me is too much to make a bow? Am I wrong or just not reading it right!

I actually measure it out, the packets don't have a full tablespoon in them.

Great minds think alike, lol. I'm planning on doing the same thing for Tink for my Peter Pan Gingerbread project this year. I'm also using gelatin to make the windows on the Jolly Roger.

Last year the hard candy coating on my Emerald City melted away when the temperature was not controlled properly at the event. Not going to let that happen again! Florida humidity STINKS!



Just thought I would jump back in and let you know how much I LOVE gelatin!!!!!!!!!!!! I used plastic plates to make sheets of gelatin for windows and Tink's wings. I used candy melts as glue and it worked just great. It hardens so quickly that it didn't melt the gelatin.

I do 4 tablespoons of water to 12 tablespoons of water, if you do the teaspoon size, it should work, it will just be alot smaller amount.
