Has anyone used Sheet Gelatin as windows on a gingerbread house? I've only used crushed candies to get the stained glass effect, but if the gingerbread house is left in too warm a spot, the windows will melt. Anyone know if the Sheet Gelatin is sturdier? We have a gingerbread house competition at the local arboretum and I go to see the creations every year. Last year there were several houses with crushed candy stained glass windows. Some must have been hit with sunlight through a skylight during the day and the windows sort of melted. I was wondering if there's a way to make it more stable. I hope to enter the contest myself this year! Thanks for your suggestions!

Have you considered using poured Gelatin instead of the sheets. You can make it with 4 T of KNox Gelatin and 12 T of water, or use sugar free Jello and water. See the thread on here about making gelatin bows for more inspiration. Heat won't affect the finished product either.
